The Electoral Commission informs me that the information requested can be found in the Electoral Commission’s recent reports into the accuracy and completeness of electoral registers.

The reports were published on 22 July and made available on the Commission’s website. Copies were also circulated to all MPs, including the hon. Member, by e-mail on the day of publication.

Copies of the reports are also available in the Library of the House of Commons.
