We have no plans to introduce this measure in England, where arrangements are not comparable to Northern Ireland. Many Electoral Registration Officers in England already work with schools and colleges in their local area to promote registration. The Government fully supports such activity. We are also supporting the registration of young people in England through an upcoming suffrage resource for secondary schools and through the recruitment of Youth Democracy Ambassadors.
