Motion text

That this House expresses its dismay at the Government's view that there should be no requirement on individuals to register to vote; believes that it is a citizen's civic duty to register to vote; notes that in Northern Ireland where individual voter registration has already been introduced it remains an offence not to return the voter registration form; and calls on the Government to reconsider its position in the light of the message about the importance of voter registration it sends out to the public.
