I refer the hon. Member to my reply given on 6 September 2010, Hansard, columns 300-01W, in which I undertook to provide a breakdown of the amounts which were provided to individual local authorities to encourage participation in electoral registration in each of the financial years 2007-08 to 2009-10 to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses. I provided this on 19 January 2011.

I will arrange for an updated breakdown of the amounts which were provided to individual local authorities in the financial year 2009-10 and for 2010-11 to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
