New Electoral Registers

EDM number 563 in 1996-97, proposed by Harry Barnes on 19/02/1997.

That this House is amazed that, although new electoral registers came into operation on 16th February and that this is an age of fax machines, computers and other forms of modern technology, the Office of National Statistics is unable to publish, until April, even in a provisional form, the total number of people who are on the new electoral registers in England and Wales; and further contrasts this with the touch-button technology used by the National Lottery.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
