As my noble friend Lord McNally made clear in his answer on 1 November (Hansard, col. 1415), his comments on 5 October about specific complaints of electoral fraud referred to allegations of electoral malpractice that had been referred to the police during the campaign for the 2010 UK general election, as the Electoral Commission has set out publicly in its report on the administration of the 2010 UK general election. The Electoral Commission has indicated that it will publish verified data and analysis on the extent and nature of cases of electoral malpractice at the UK general election in January 2011.
