May I ask the Prime Minister whether this point will be looked into? In Lancashire there are constituencies which include a number of boroughs or urban districts which take their wakes week at separate times. Will there be provision for one part of the constituency to vote on the first day and the other part on the second day, not only provision for postponing voting in the whole of the constituency till the next week, because otherwise it will be very difficult for a large number of Lancashire people?
