Electoral Commission

Volume 679: debated on Monday 7 September 2020

[Relevant Documents: Third Report of the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission, Re-appointment of a Nominated Electoral Commissioner, HC 627.]

Motion made, and Question proposed,

That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that Her Majesty will re-appoint Alasdair Morgan as an Electoral Commissioner with effect from 1 October 2020 for the period ending on 30 September 2022.—(Stuart Andrew.)

I thank the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission for its third report. I wish Alasdair Morgan all good wishes for his work and thank him for serving on the Committee.

Again, I will be very brief. I thoroughly endorse the reappointment of Alasdair to the Electoral Commission. He has done an excellent job so far and his wealth of experience from this place and the Scottish Parliament certainly is of great benefit to the Commission.
