PLANS for postal voting in Kirklees have again been thrown into chaos.
The Lords last night rejected Government plans to trial all-postal voting in four regions including Yorkshire in June.
But Labour leaders immediately hit back, insisting that the trial would go ahead.
The new system would mean the elections for all Kirklees councillors and the Euro elections would be done by post, rather than the traditional ballot box.
The Lords last night re-asserted its bid to rein back the schemes.
Ministers seek to run pilots in the East Midlands, North East, North West and Yorkshire and the Humber European Parliament constituencies and those of their associated councils which have polls this year.
This would involve about 14m electors.
But the Lords voted 174 to 130, a majority of 44, backing a Tory and Liberal Democrat bid to axe the plans for the North West and Yorkshire and the Humber - more than halving the electorate involved.
