HC Deb 12 December 1990 vol 182 cc399-400W
Mr. Meacher

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many expatriates have now had a vote registered in the United Kingdom under the 1989 Act; and if he will give a breakdown of the countries where they are now resident, following the publication of new draft electoral registers for 1991–92.

Mrs. Rumbold

Lists of overseas electors were published by individual electoral registration officers on 28 November. We shall make the figures known to the House in due course. A breakdown of the number of overseas electors by country of residence could be published only at disproportionate cost.
