To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what recent steps he has taken to tackle voter fraud; what plans his Department has to tackle such fraud in the future; and if he will make a statement.
15 December 2016
The Government is committed to tackling fraud and making our electoral process more secure. We have introduced and developed Individual Electoral Registration over the past two years to tighten up the registration process and recently welcomed Sir Eric Pickles’ report on his review into electoral fraud to which we are giving careful attention as an important step in looking at improvements to the voting process. The Government will publish its report in due course.
