HC Deb 05 July 1982 vol 27 c1W
Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Prime Minister if she will seek to change the electoral system in the United Kingdom so that the identity of specific voters can no longer be ascertained.

The Prime Minister

Marked copies of the electoral register, showing which electors exercised their right to vote at a particular election, are available for public inspection to help safeguard against malpractice. The identity of the candidate for whom a voter voted can be ascertained only in certain circumstances, through a court order or, for parliamentary elections, an order of the House. I have no present plans to change these arrangements.
