I beg to move, in page 13, line 23, after "proxy," insert:

"except those provisions which relate to the application of Part IV of the Act of 1945"
This Amendment is necessary because the Clause as it now stands excludes university constituencies from all the registration and voting provisions of the Bill. This exclusion is too wide since the provisions for extending the postal voting in a General Election shall contain Part IV of the Representation of the People Act, 1945—and are continued by Clause 8—and are effective in respect of university elections. Accordingly, the Amendment exempts those provisions from that portion of the Clause.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
