Individual Electoral Representation: Implementation

 

Discrimination and racism is not endemic during UK election campaigns but is a recognisable cause for concern. This report by an all-party group of MPs examines the issues and makes some straightforward proposals for change. It is clear that local authorities have an important role to play in communications in addition to their responsibilities in the management and supervision of elections. This briefing is of interest to all elected members, and to officers with responsibility for communications, election management and community relations.
