Lord Lexden introduced An amendment to the Electoral Registration Bill. Previously in The Commons Mr. Clifton-Brown MP had done the same. Both times the amendments were withdrawn under pressure from Government spokesmen. Once again in the Lords (Report Stage) Lord Lexden introduced an amendment and again withdrew it with the agreement to chair an all-party committee on the issue. That is the situation at the end of January 2013.
