Sir: Thank you for pointing out the deadline for registration to vote in the forthcoming European elections ('Foreign voters to lose out in poll for Strasbourg', 29 March). As a direct result of your article, this foreigner will be able to exercise his right to participate in the democratic process.

The Government, and in particular Sir Teddy Taylor and other members of the xenophobic tendency of the Conservative Party, can rest assured that my vote will go against those who attempt to deny me such privilege. Meanwhile, German residents in Britain may be relieved to learn that they can contact the German Embassy to register for a postal vote until three weeks before the election.

Yours sincerely,


London, SW9
