The day after the Blair landslide, while Labour was partying on the south bank, we were...

Lord Rennard: ...electoral registration, but, when the legislation was being prepared, the Conservative side of the coalition was keen to drop the annual canvass.

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill: Early parliamentary general election (29 Oct 2019)

Nigel Evans: ...Council of Europe countries have general elections on a Sunday, but I can understand, from a religious point of view, why that might not be totally appropriate. I am even persuaded of having early voting, as whether it was 9 December or 12 December would not be as important for those who all of a sudden are told by their works that they have to be away. They may not know until a day...

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Jenny Marra: ...at least five. There will be parents and, perhaps, grandparents; that all adds to the burden for our national health service. The Communication Workers Union told us that, since the 2010 act, 2,500 postal workers have been attacked. Local authorities and dog wardens told us of the challenges that they face when they attempt to enforce dog control legislation. Some of the members of the...

Sammy Wilson: Is the Minister aware that in Northern Ireland, as a result of the increase in proxy votes and postal votes, to which the Electoral Commission has turned a blind eye, and which is done on an industrial scale by Sinn Féin, who look at the marked register, find out who has not voted in the last election, visit them and get the forms filled in, at least two members of the SDLP probably lost...

Valerie Vaz: ...said that we had used up our allotted Opposition days; can we have some unallotted days? What a mandate, what a ringing endorsement—less than 0.4% of an electorate. Some 46.8 million citizens can vote in a general election, but the Prime Minister was selected by 92,000 people—92,000 people, taking back control. He has not won the support of our country.
