Philip Dunne urges the Government to support the Overseas Electors Bill

21st February 2018

Philip Dunne calls on the Government to support the Overseas Electors Bill which is a Private Member's Bill to extend voting rights to all British citizens living overseas.

T7. Will my hon. Friend mark the centenary of women’s suffrage by giving Government support to the Overseas Electors Bill of my hon. Friend the Member for Montgomeryshire (Glyn Davies) to enfranchise British citizens who have lost the right to vote? [903991]

Yes, I intend to speak on the Government’s behalf during the Bill’s Second Reading on Friday. The proposal is an important Conservative manifesto commitment, but I hope that it will also command cross-party support.
