HC Deb 17 February 1978 vol 944 c381W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many non-British citizens are on the electoral register; what action he has taken or intends taking to advise those who are not entitled to vote that they should refrain from voting; as there is no limit to the number of registers that a person with several homes or part-time residences may register on, what action is taken to ensure that these people only vote once; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. John

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers I gave to Questions by him, on 10th November and 30th January and to the answer my right hon. Friend gave to a Question by the hon. Member for Chingford (Mr. Tebbit) on 10th February.—[Vol. 938, c. 216–7; Vol. 943, c. 10; Vol. 943, c. 714–5.]
