Roger Casale, founder and CEO of New Europeans has written to Chris Skidmore MP, Minister for the Constitution about the Votes 4 Life bill.

We are asking for the Bill to be implemented before dissolution so that 5.5m UK expats can have the right to vote in the General Election on 8 June.

The Government had promised to grant this right by abolishing the 15 year rule in time for the next General Election in its manifesto for the 2015 election.

Here is our letter in full

We do not believe that parliament will sit again after the local elections on 4 May and so we have set a deadline of 28 April for signatures.



Here is the initial reply from the Cabinet Office
