It's ahead of a possible election in December

This is almost double the number for the previous eight weeks.
Ever since a snap general election was first proposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in early September, the number of applications has averaged around a quarter of a million every week.
In total, 1,966,876 applications were submitted in the eight weeks to October 27.Published: by Radio NewsHub
