§ Mr. Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will take steps to ensure that electoral registration officers release to authorised persons in each constituency in Scotland representing political parties lists of those who have died since the inception of the electoral registers for 1987–88; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Lang
There is no requirement for electoral registration officers to be supplied with, or to maintain, lists of persons who have died; or to supply such lists to the political parties. My right hon. and learned Friend has no plans to introduce such requirements.
