Electoral Registration

Volume 447: debated on Monday 5 June 2006

To ask my hon. Friend the hon. Member for Gosport, representing the Speaker's Committee on the Electoral Commission, what research the Commission has undertaken of the number of (a) failed asylum seekers and (b) foreign nationals not from the Commonwealth or Irish Republic who are fraudulently on the electoral register. (73920)

The Electoral Commission informs me that it has undertaken no research into these issues.

Where it appears to an Electoral Registration Officer that an attempt has been made by any individual to register fraudulently, it would be for them to make inquiries and, if appropriate, alert the police.
