HC Deb 30 March 1979 vol 965 c368W
Mr. Hodgson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied that electoral registration officers have sufficient powers under regulation 24 of the Representation of the People Regulations 1974 to ensure that electoral registers are compiled on a comparable basis throughout the United Kingdom; whether they are making use of these powers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I believe that the powers available to electoral registration officers are adequate.
