§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will introduce legislation to prohibit candidates for parliamentary, European parliamentary, and local government elections from using misleading and deceptive descriptions in ballot papers; and, if not, why not.
§ The Minister of State, Home Office (Baroness Blatch)
An election petition relating to this matter has recently been considered by an election court and I understand that the case is stillsub judice. However, we shall read the court's decision with interest and consider it carefully.
