HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c602W
Sir Donald Kaberry

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give fresh, clear instructions in connection with the coming annual preparation of the list of electors in parliamentary constituencies that wardens or controllers of properties with multiple residences must list as persons eligible to vote only those who are British citizens of the United Kingdom.

Mr. Brittan

The Representation of the People (Amendment) Regulations 1980, recently approved by Parliament, revise the householders' electoral registration form, form 'A', in use in England and Wales so as to make more explicit that only British subjects—including Commonwealth citizens—and citizens of the Republic of Ireland are eligible for inclusion in the electoral register.
