Gems from Westminster Hall
7 Mar 2003
Debates in Westminster Hall are not always well-attended, but they have their moments.
On March 7th, there was a debate on voter apathy and Sunday voting, to which I made a small contribution. Later on, the Member for Gedling spoke. I paraphrase what he said - his actual words can be found in Hansard.
Voter apathy was a matter of the deepest concern - indeed it was gnawing away at the very foundations of our democracy. So concerned was he that he had convened a public meeting on the issue in his constituency.
No one turned up.
