3Qualification of voters at ward elections

(1)Section 6 of the 1957 Act (qualification of voters at ward elections) shall be amended as follows—

(a)After subsection (1)(b) there shall be inserted— or

(c)are persons appointed in writing as voters by a qualifying body which ordinarily occupies as owner or tenant any premises situated in that ward, being premises in respect of which the right to appoint one or more voters depends on the size of the workforce there;.

(b)After subsection (2) there shall be inserted—

(3)In this section “occupies” shall be construed in accordance with subsection (1) of section 2 of the City of London (Ward Elections) Act 2002; and “qualifying body” and “workforce” have the respective meanings given by that subsection..

(2)The extent of the right to appoint mentioned in section 6(1)(c) of the 1957 Act as depending on the size of the workforce shall be—

(a)one for a workforce of up to 5, plus one for every 5 by which a workforce exceeds 5, up to a workforce of 50; and

(b)for a workforce that exceeds 50, the number given by paragraph (a) of this subsection plus 1 for every 50 of that excess.

(3)In the case of a workforce of over 5 whose number is not exactly divisible by 5 or 50, as the case may be, the remainder shall be disregarded for the purposes of subsection (2) above.

(4)For ward elections to be held during the period of 12 months beginning with 16th February in the appointed year or during the period of 12 months beginning with that date in any subsequent year, the qualifying date is 1st September in the preceding year.

(5)For the purposes of subsection (4)—

(a)if this Act is passed before 1st September in the year in which it is passed, the appointed year is the year next after that year;

(b)if not, the appointed year is the year next but one after the year in which it is passed.

(6)No person shall be entitled to vote in more than one ward or more than once in a ward at any ward elections; and accordingly no person shall be registered in more than one ward list or more than once in a ward list.

(7)For the purposes of section 6 of the 1957 Act, any premises partly situated in each of two or more wards of the city shall be treated as being situated wholly within the ward which appears to the town clerk to contain the greater or, as the case may be, the greatest part of the premises.

(8)Where, apart from this subsection, sections 6(1)(a) and 6(1)(c) of the 1957 Act would both apply in relation to the same premises, only section 6(1)(a) shall apply in relation to those premises.
