To ask the hon. Member for South West Devon, representing the Speaker's Committee on the Electoral Commission, pursuant to the answer of 26 July 2010, Official Report, columns 719-20W, on the electoral register, what steps the Electoral Commission has taken to monitor the training and performance of electoral registration officers.
The Electoral Commission implemented a performance standards framework in 2008 which monitors the overall performance of electoral registration officers (EROs). One of these standards assesses the training undertaken by EROs.
The results of the annual assessment of both the training and performance of EROs can be found on the Electoral Commission's website. The Commission is working closely with EROs that have under-performed and has asked them to report again by the end of June 2011, providing evidence to show how they have now met the standard. The Commission will publish a further report into their performance in the summer.
