Alert me about debates like this

Where electoral registration regulations provide that an application by any person for his name to be entered in the absent voters list is to be made as respects a prescribed period, a person whose name is so entered shall not be entitled to appoint a proxy otherwise than for that period or for so much thereof as remains unexpired at the time of the appointment (without prejudice however to his power to cancel the appointment); and accordingly, in sub-paragraph (b) of paragraph one of the First Schedule to the Act of 1943 for the words "at any election initiated during that period or any part thereof specified in the application," there shall be substituted the words "at an election for which that list will be used."—[Mr. H. Morrison.]

Brought up, and read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
