That this House is concerned at allegations of high levels of voter fraud in Halifax and elsewhere at the 2010 General Election; notes that Calderdale Council has admitted that 763 postal votes from Halifax constituency in that election failed to match voter registration records; is alarmed that, despite the submission of a five page dossier to West Yorkshire Police in May 2010, highlighting examples of voter impersonation, bullying, multiple postal voting, bogus voters and false registration, no formal police investigation was started until September 2010, and only then after resistance; and calls on West Yorkshire Police to instigate an immediate and full investigation into these very serious allegations.

leave out from `House' to end and add `condemns the inaccurate and misleading information the Conservative Party has put in the public domain regarding their false allegations of Labour voter fraud in Halifax; notes that the police have put out a statement saying their preliminary investigations into this issue were completed without resistance on their part by July; further notes that the Conservative Party's statement that these investigations were started by the police in September 2010 is factually inaccurate; further notes that the BBC's Politics Show investigated the allegations at the weekend and found nothing to back up the Conservative claims; praises the impartiality and integrity of Calderdale Police and Calderdale Council's electoral services office; looks forward to the findings of the police investigation being completed on Friday 5 November 2010; calls on the Conservative Party to apologise for the behaviour of the defeated Conservative candidate in Halifax; further calls on the Conservative Party to condemn the defeated Conservative candidate in Halifax for signing a Facebook petition calling for a by-election in Halifax; further notes that there is no substance to any of these allegations; further notes that people dislike a bad loser; and suggests that if the police findings show no proof of any of these allegations the Conservative Party should issue a full and frank apology for their smears, spin and untruths.'.
