Mr Gregory Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what plans she has to ensure that regional electoral offices throughout Northern Ireland are retained.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The structure and makeup of the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland are operational matters for the Chief Electoral Officer.

Following the recent publication of the response to the joint consultation on the Future Delivery of Electoral Services in Northern Ireland I have every confidence that the Chief Electoral Officer will make the right decisions for the future of her office and the delivery of modern and accessible electoral services.

The response to the consultation is available at:
