asked the Home Secretary the number of persons who have become members of local governing bodies without popular election during the war as a result of the Local Elections (Temporary Provisions) Act; and what relation this bears to the total membership of such bodies?

The information for which my hon. Friend asks could only be obtained from the local bodies concerned and as there are over 8,500 of these I should not feel justified in incurring the labour involved in collecting statistics from all of them, but I am inquiring whether some sample figures can be obtained quickly.
