Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 17 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the geographic scope is of her proposals to legislate to allow for (a) remote voting by councillors and (b) incentives for electors to vote. (262687)

Our proposals on both remote voting for local authority members and incentives for electors to vote relate to England. In the other countries of the United Kingdom these matters are the responsibilities of the Devolved Administrations concerned.
