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. I cannot believe that that is the Government’s intention, and I hope that in her closing speech the Minister will clarify how the problem is to be resolved. Let me now deal with new clause 1. If the Government were truly serious about improving...

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

Alex Norris: I share my hon. Friend’s view. What I hear during my visits is very much in line what she is hearing. We know that 16 and 17-year-olds, when given the chance, take it very seriously. In Scotland and Wales, they have higher rates of turnout than 18 to 24-year-olds, with 75% voting and 97% saying that they would vote in future elections. They have also accessed more information from a wider...

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

Alex Norris: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I hoped that we were going to talk about his new clause, but instead, as he knows as well as I do, he is creating a false equivalence between a licensed event and going to vote in a polling station, where, as yet, I have not been offered a pint at the ballot box. Maybe that will be in the next elections Bill.

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

Alex Norris: I have significant issues with new clause 13, as drafted, which simply asks to introduce a proportional system. For something as seismic as that, there ought to be greater detail about what is being proposed. I am also a strong believer—this speaks to new clause 5 in the name of the hon. Member for Argyll and Bute (Brendan O’Hara)—in the desirability of a citizens convention on our...

Elections Bill: Schedule 10 - Illegal practices (17 Jan 2022)

Alex Norris: There are many difficult decisions to make in this place—matters of fine balance, of public policy or of genuine disagreement—that are hard for all right hon. and hon. Members, but this is not one of those. This is a bad Bill brought forward by a bad Government in the pursuit of bad intentions. They have pushed it through without pre-legislative scrutiny, avoided the Committee of the...
