Electoral Register

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what recent representations he has received on the system of electoral registration; and if he will make a statement. (202981)

Since November 2007 my Department has received 105 representations about the system of electoral registration, including access to the electoral register, franchise arrangements for overseas voters and reducing the voting age to 16. I have personally written to 54 Members of Parliament in response to these representations. During the same period, I have also answered 25 parliamentary questions relating to electoral registration.
