To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ensure that arrangements be improved for electoral registration officers to provide hon. Members whose constituency boundaries have been changed with copies of the electoral register for the constituency in which they were elected.
The Representations of the People Regulations 1986 require the electoral registration officer for each district to supply to the hon. Member concerned as much of the district's register as relates to his constituency, so as to ensure that the hon. Member has the complete register for that constituency. The draft 1988 register for each constituency should now be available, but if the hon. Member still has not got it perhaps he will let me know.
