HL Deb 05 March 1998 vol 586 c184WA
Lord Marlesford

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there is a standard format and layout in which the Register of Electors in the United Kingdom should be published. [HL854]

Lord Williams of Mostyn

The requirements for the format of the electoral register are prescribed in the Representation of the People Regulations 1986. Each register must show who is eligible to vote at which elections in a particular area but registration officers have some flexibility over the order in which names and addresses are shown.
