asked the Secretary of State for Air approximately what percentage of R.A.F. personnel have so far applied to have ballot papers sent to them by post at the General Election.
Up to 31st May about 39 per cent. of Royal Air Force personnel on the Service Register had applied to vote by post. All units have been informed that applications must be received by Electoral Registration Officers not later than 20th June, and it has also been made clear that those who do not vote by post may register their votes through any proxies they have appointed.
