Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
I would like to know why Wirral Electoral Register is being used by Downing Street to send out 'stuff' from the Prime Minister running up to the election,(received yesterday). I have previously elected not to be in that list for public sales, and believe you have broken that contract with me.

Yours faithfully,
Maureen Blewitt
