Votes for Life

Chairman of Conservatives Abroad, Heather Harper said "I am very pleased that today in the Queen’s Speech the Government reiterated its commitment to deliver the Manifesto pledge to scrap the ‘15 year rule’."    More information can be found here  https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/queens-speech-2016 (page 63)  which sets out that ‘The Bill would enable British citizens who have been resident overseas for more than 15 years to continue to vote in UK elections.’  The Bill will be introduced as soon as Parliamentary time allows.
