To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Henley on 28 May (WA 100-1), how they will publicise the proposed "multichannel approach" for informing the public about the candidates for the Police and Crime Commissioner elections; what the "multichannel approach" entails; and how they will monitor and publish information about (1) the number of unique visitors to the website, and (2) the number of requests for information in a paper booklet.

Subject to parliamentary approval of the Police and Crime Commissioner (Elections) Order 2012, a website will provide detailed information on all the candidates, including their election addresses, and a freephone number to enable voters to ask for free leaflet versions to be delivered to their homes. The website address and freephone number will be on every polling card, and on all Home Office and Electoral Commission literature on police and crime commissioners. No decisions have yet been taken on how visits to the website and requests for leaflets will be monitored.
