Electoral Register: British Nationals Abroad

Volume 505: debated on Friday 5 February 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many UK citizens resident abroad are registered to vote in each parliamentary constituency, ranked from highest to lowest in respect of the number in each constituency. (314900)

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.

Letter from Stephen Penneck, dated February 2010:

As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your question asking how many UK citizens resident overseas are registered to vote in each Parliamentary constituency, ranked from highest to lowest in respect of the number in each constituency. (314900)

Table 1 shows the number of overseas electors registered to vote by Parliamentary constituency in the UK in 2008, in descending order. 2008 is the latest year for which data are available. A copy has been placed in the libraries of the house.
