False Declarations for Election Candidates

The request was successful.

Dear Lambeth Borough Council,

Please can you explain the process in which Lambeth Council verifies the accuracy of candidate declarations for local elections.

In particular I would like to know that any declarations of not having a previous criminal record have been accepted as being truthful and accurate by the Council.

If any of the declarations have not been accepted as being truthful and accurate, or are under investigation, please can you state which candidate(s) this applies to and for what reason.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Jason Cobb
