Volume 457: debated on Wednesday 7 March 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs how many people were convicted for being on the electoral register when not entitled to vote in each of the last five years. (125651)

The Electoral Administration 2006 created a new offence of providing an electoral registration officer with false or incorrect information. This provision came into force in September 2006 and to date, I know of no convictions under it.
