PUBLIC VALUE OF THE EDITED ELECTORAL REGISTER
EDM #215
Tabled 14 June 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House believes that the edited electoral register provides very significant social and economic benefits for the UK as a whole; notes that the edited electoral resister does this by helping charities to fundraise, helping reunite lost friends and family (including the 3,000 people found by the Salvation Army), locating and connecting organ and bone marrow donors, enabling adoption organisations to find biological parents of adoptive children, and assisting businesses provide age verification, to reduce credit card fraud, minimise identity theft, pursue bad debts, repatriate dormant financial assets to their rightful owners, and support probate; and opposes all steps which might further significantly restrict access to or abolish the edited electoral register.
