answer text <p> </p><p>The electoral register has been the basis for parliamentary boundary reviews since the creation of the independent Boundary Commissions. The Government does not believe that using population figures derived from Census data would provide a better basis for a boundary review than using the electoral register. Importantly, the electoral register is updated annually, and census figures will include persons who are not eligible to register to vote, for example on grounds of citizenship or age.</p><p> </p> more like this
