Electoral Fraud

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 29 June 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs how many incidents of (a) postal vote fraud and (b) other electoral fraud there were in (i) European elections, (ii) parliamentary elections and (iii) local elections in each of the last 30 years. (79077)

Information in this detail is not collected centrally. However, I refer my hon. Friend to the previous answer on 13 June 2005, Official Report, column 181W, for information on electoral fraud convictions. Since then, I am aware that in Halton, in May 2006 a former Labour councillor was convicted and fined for electoral fraud offences relating to the local and European parliamentary elections in 2004.
