Encouraging the engagement of young people in politics

Peter Aldous questions the Deputy PM about Government action to increase the engagement of young people in the political process.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): Later this week, I shall attend a meeting of Waveney youth council in my constituency. Given the declining proportion of young people voting at recent elections, I would welcome an update to pass on to the youth council on the steps that my right hon. Friend is taking to ensure the early registration of young people and their active engagement in the political process.

The Deputy Prime Minister: We hope that the process of individual electoral registration that we are pressing ahead with, and particularly the practice of comparing existing databases with the electoral register, will enable us to identify voters, old and young, who should be on the register but are not.
