To ask the hon. Member for South West Devon, representing the Speaker's Committee on the Electoral Commission, what number and percentage of electors were added to the electoral register as a result of the implementation of standard three door to door canvassing in each constituent part and region of the UK in each of the last 10 years.
The Electoral Commission informs me that they do not hold the data requested. The data collected annually from EROs is household-level data rather than elector level data, reflecting the household nature of the annual canvass.
The data collected includes the number of household canvass returns made via different response methods-including personal canvasser, and this is available for each year from 2008 on their website.
