[Mr. Martin Caton in the Chair] — Boundaries, Voting and Representation (Scotland) (20 Jul 2006)

Jo Swinson: I cannot answer for the Conservative party, nor would I attempt to figure out the bizarre structures by which it decides such things, particularly when it comes to Europe. It is difficult to keep up with where it is on that issue this week. I welcome the recommendation to introduce the single transferable vote for European elections.

As postal voting—and, even more dangerously, e-voting—does...
