§ 19. Mr. Skinner
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is now in a position to announce changes in the election law in order to increase the numbers on the electoral register; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
As I stated in my reply to a question from the hon. Member for Derbyshire, North-East (Mr. Barnes) on 11 February, we have set up a working group of Home Office officials and representatives of electoral registration officers and local authorities to look at all aspects of electoral registration. We shall consider the working group's findings once it has concluded its work.
