Communications Data Bill

Responded to a constituent with this email:

Thank you for your recent email regarding the communications data bill.

I am sympathetic to your views on this bill and I believe there should be a public consultation. I will of course write to Theresa May on your behalf and I will be in contact again once I have received a response.

Please do not hesitate to contact me in the meantime however if you have any further questions on this or any other issue.

Electronic Voting

House of Commons debates Electoral Administration Bill 8 November 2005

We had some interesting pilots in Sheffield on electronic voting, in which some wards had electronic voting and others did not. We learned that having electronic voting made virtually no difference to voter turnout, so the idea that it was going to provide some kind of panacea to get thousands more people to vote proved not to be the case. So pilots can prove that things will not work, as well as proving that they will. That is the idea of a pilot, and we should set out with an open mind as to what the result will be.
