Parliament is due to have a 2nd reading of the Automatic Electoral Register Act on 6th July 2018. The draft Bill proposes to impose certain duties on the Government to ensure the accuracy and completeness of electoral registers and to make provision for the sharing of data for the purposes of electoral registration and for connected purposes.
This will include data matching and cross-sharing for the purposes of electoral registration, and will include but not limited to:
- HM Revenue and Customs

Registration officers will also be compelled to inspect dwellings where no individuals have been entered on the electoral register.
