Mark Tami

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how much each local authority has spent on(a) voter registration and (b) promoting voter registration in each of the last five years. [156549]

Phil Hope

A table with data on the Net Current Expenditure on voter registration for 1998–99, 1999–2000, 2001–02 and 2002–03 has been made available in the Library of the House. Data for 2000–01 is not available as the data was not separately identified.

Data on promoting voter registration are not collected centrally, and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
