HC Deb 11 June 1997 vol 295 c444W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he proposes to increase the percentage of(a) persons aged over 18 years, (b) people from ethnic minority backgrounds and (c) people in rented accommodation who are registered to vote. [3073]

Mr. George Howarth

We are considering how best to publicise this autumn's canvass for electoral registration and in particular how to reach groups whose members tend to be more likely not to register. These include the young, members of ethnic minority groups and people who are not in settled accommodation.
