Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: I confess that I had hoped the hon. Gentleman would ask me that. I have been a Labour party branch secretary, branch chair, constituency secretary, constituency chair, councillor, Member of Parliament and shadow Minister, and I have never once been asked for voter ID at a meeting.

In this place she is a leading campaigner on such issues, and that is exactly what the campaign groups and the representative groups are saying.

Elections Bill: New Clause 11 - Power to make regulations about registration, absent voting and other matters (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: That is an excellent point. The question of who provides the requisite equipment and who does not will differ greatly between authorities.
