Electoral Register: Publicity

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 4 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what guidance his Department has given to electoral registration officers on the promotion of credit referencing as a reason to apply for inclusion on an electoral roll on council-maintained websites. (190066)

Responsibility for issuing guidance to Electoral Registration Officers (EROs) on electoral registration lies with the Electoral Commission. I understand that it has not issued any guidance on the promotion of credit referencing as a reason to apply for inclusion on an electoral register. Promotion of electoral registration within each local authority is a matter for the independent EROs.
