Electoral Register: Fraud

Volume 476: debated on Wednesday 21 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people were convicted of falsifying information given on an electoral registration form in the most recent 24 month period for which figures are available. (206300)

Unfortunately this information is not recorded in this form and to identify it would involve a relevant authority going through individual case records.

However, the Electoral Commission is working with the Association of Chief Police Officers and police forces to collect information about electoral offences so that there is a more comprehensive record for the future.
