I refer the Hon Member to my answer to Question UIN 14836 on 27 February 2024.

At the elections on 2 May, the Government centrally funded a national ‘sweep’ by Royal Mail of their mail centres to ensure that completed postal ballot packs were pulled out at mail centres on the evening of polling day and delivered directly to local Returning Officers.
