As it has previously been confirmed to the hon. Member, the Electoral Commission does not hold ward data by town and parliamentary constituency.

The most recent postal vote turnout data it holds by ward/division is for the May 2013 county council elections in England and Anglesey, Wales. The following table shows the wards/divisions where the postal voter turnout was greater than 80 per cent.

County Local authority Electoral ward / division Postal voter turnout (% postal ballots returned)

Leicestershire Melton Melton North 82
Cumbria South Lakeland Kendal Highgate 81
Norfolk North Norfolk Holt 81
Buckinghamshire Wycombe Booker Cressex and Castlefield 81
