SINCE the publication of the last edition of this Volume of Rogers on Elections the Local Government Act, 1894, has created the new class of Parochial Electors, who now elect the Guardians, and the members of the Parish Councils, and in the Metropolis the Vestrymen and Auditors, and except in boroughs, the members of the District Councils. This edition includes the registration of these Electors.
So many cases have been decided in the Superior Courts as to the right of persons to be on the register and to vote, that the previous decisions of Election Committees of the House of Commons have, in general, ceased to be of much importance. These Committees had a political character, and hence their resolutions, for which no reasons were stated, were frequently unsatisfactory and conflicting.
For this reason many of the decisions of these Committees, which were in previous editions, have been omitted. As regards decisions on the facts, they were useless as precedents, and as regards law they were of no value, as even "a resolution of the House of Commons could not deprive a person of any right of voting conferred by Statute" (per cur. in Bulmer v. Norris, post, p. 44 and n. ()).
