It strikes me that it might also be useful if we could have any information that you may have on the amount of research that has been undertaken in this area on the number who are registered. It seems that the problem may not be on quite the scale that some people think, given that earlier we were debating the problems relating to 3.5 million people who are denied votes-I do not want to go over the issue-because they are not registered. If there is any information that could be supplied in this area, it would help us all.
