Electoral Register: Information and Communications Technology

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether the technical specifications of the Co-ordinated Online Record of Electors' database will allow the introduction of individual electoral registration. (203139)

Any work that is carried out in respect of individual registration will be done on its own merits, and is not reliant on the progress of the CORE Project.

A final decision as to the scope and specification of the CORE project will be made once an analysis of both the business and user requirements has been made. However, in accordance with good practice on the management of projects, any database that is developed will be, as far as is possible, capable of adapting to future requirements that may be anticipated.
