§ Mr. Nellist
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will publish a table to show for England the number of local government electors on each of the 1985 to 1990 electoral registers, together with the estimated resident population for the mid point of each preceding year, including those aged 17 years and over, and 63 per cent. of those aged 16 years.
§ Mr. Dorrell
Numbers of local government electors on the 1985 to 1990 registers have been published in annual volumes of "Electoral Statistics"—series EL nos. 13 to 17— copies of which are available in the Library. I have arranged for the requested resident population estimates to be prepared and sent to the hon. Member, and a copy will then be placed in the Library.
