Voting rights for British expats

The Queen’s Speech yesterday announced that Voting Right for Life will be introduced for all British expats, also those who have been abroad for more than 15 years. But it does not promise it to be in place for the planned referendum on EU membership.  A cross-party campaign is now starting to get it in place in time for the referendum.  The expats are after all among those people most affected by the result of the vote.
