From Fianna Fail 1959 Referendum on Change in Voting System – “The Straight Vote Some Questions and Answers” August 7, 2014

From the 1959 Referendum on changing the voting system an eight page document from Fianna Fail outlining the reasons whu they wanted the electoral system changed and answering various questions on the issue. Its a very interesting read as it fails to really address the reason why the proposal was defeated, ie we would have had majority Fianna Fail Governments for an awful long time.
