Prisoners And The Right To Vote

EDM number 953 in 2010-12, proposed by Brian Binley on 03/11/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Electoral franchise, Human rights and Prisons.

That this House believes that if a crime is serious enough to warrant a term of imprisonment, then the perpetrator must forgo certain civil liberties, including the right to suffrage; and recognises that the right to vote does not aid the rehabilitation of a prisoner and is a privilege that should be exclusively reserved for law-abiding citizens.

This motion has been signed by a total of 67 MPs.
