Consultation into charges for the marked register

The Department for Justice has launched a consultation into charges/fees being asked for copies of the marked register.

We have until the 18th October to comment.

Our bill here in Liverpool this year was astronomical, we must respond in our droves!
It has gone up from about £10 per ward to about £50 per ward.

I will be asking for marked registers to be free to candidates. I dont see why anyone who is not a political party should want or need to see them, so I dont care how much they pay.

I wonder if our CLP knows about this - I haven't heard or seen anything mentioned about it. We'll probably decide not to bother as it's too pricy!!
