Hugh Alexander Stewart

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEWART (Leeds):

The word "shall" in clause 14 of the bill, the third line from the last, is the only word that might be open to objection. The clause reads:
His name shall be struck therefrom, whether or not the voter by whom the objection was made has appeared before the revising officer.
It makes it imperative upon the revising officer to remove the name. I would suggest that the word "may" might well be substituted.
