HC Deb 05 December 1991 vol 200 c218W
Mr. Robert Hughes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many electoral registration officers in England and Wales are scrutinising the electoral register for foreign sounding names and thereafter asking each voter so identified to sign a declaration that they are British subjects; and if this is being done on his advice.

Mrs. Rumbold

We are not aware of any electoral registration officer in England or Wales who has adopted such a procedure; we have not issued any advice to that effect.
