asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that on 25th April men in the 2nd Battalion the South Lancashire Regiment S.E.A.C., had not received voting papers B 2626; whether these have now been delivered; and what caused the delay.

I assume my hon. Friend is referring to the application for postal voting papers. They were dispatched from this country by air in the middle of April and they could hardly have reached individual units on the Burma Front by 25th April. I hope, however, that this unit had them in good time. As my hon. Friend is aware, applications may reach Registration Officers until 20th June.
