Under the provisions of the Representation of the People Act 1985, a person is not entitled to vote as proxy at the same parliamentary election in any constituency on behalf of more than two electors for whom that person is not the spouse or civil partner, parent, grandparent, brother, sister, child or grandchild. The Electoral Office for Northern Ireland does not keep a record of the relationships between the registered voter and their successfully appointed proxy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government provides funding for a range of services that can be accessed by refugees as part of their successful integration. Language skills and employment skills are key, and the ability to speak English is a key enabler to successful integration. On this basis the Government provides funding for and supports English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) as part of its wider strategy to improve adult literacy in England. ESOL funding is not ring-fenced and comes out of a provider’s Adult Education Budget (AEB). Colleges and training providers have the freedom and flexibility to determine how they use their AEB to meet the needs of their communities. There is no direct funding of cultural bodies for integration purposes although refugees are encouraged to participate in existing social and community groups.</p> more like this
