I beg to move, in page I6, line 37, after "register," insert "or supplementary register."

I think it would be as well if at the same time, we considered a similar Amendment in line 10, on page 17. These Amendments are required because the facilities for voting by proxy conferred by Clause 6 are conferred not only on persons registered in the civilian residents' register, but also on persons registered as civilian voters in the supplementary register.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 17, line 10, after "register," insert "or supplementary register."—[ Mr. Ede.]

Schedule, as amended, agreed to. Third and Fourth Schedules agreed to.

Bill reported, with Amendments; as amended, to be considered Tomorrow, and to be printed. [Bill 45.]
