Volume 494: debated on Wednesday 24 June 2009

To ask the hon. Member for South West Devon, representing the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission what assessment the Electoral Commission has made of the merits of the use of a standard form of ballot paper for postal voting in elections. (282085)

The Electoral Commission informs me that it is currently developing a set of UK-wide standards on the accessibility, design and usability of ballot papers and associated stationery including postal voting materials. The Commission will publish its standards in autumn 2009.
