Dr. VERNON DAVIES:20.
asked the Secretary of State for War what provision will be made for Territorials who may be in camp at the date of the Election for recording their votes; and what opportunity will be given them to hear the policy of the different political parties before doing so?
Territorials who may be in camp during the Election may be placed on the absent voters' list or may be granted leave from camp for the purpose of recording their votes. Full instructions will be issued in due course. As regards the last part of the question, no opportunity can be given while in camp.
I am surprised to hear that it is thought to be too late to go on to the absent voters' list. There is some provision with regard to serving soldiers, and that is the provision which it is intended to put into operation. I will see that particulars are published as quickly as possible.
