To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, further to his answer to the hon. Member for Stafford (Mr. Cash) of 28 November, Official Report, column 570, what progress has been made in removing or mitigating the effects of the draft European directive on data protection on canvassing voters' intentions.
