Labour is to reform the postal voting system to stop cheating after the General Election, a senior peer revealed.
Lord Rooker, former MP for Birmingham Perry Barr and now a Home Office Minister, said Labour would introduce changes if it wins the next election.
The comments suggest Labour is set to make a major U-turn, after previously insisting the system was fine as it was.
MG Rover workers are being the offered chance to win jobs in the offshore oil and gas industry - by retraining as divers.
The Scottish-based Underwater Centre, which claims to be one of the world's top training centres for "subsea careers", said there was strong demand for divers.

Birmingham City has been criticised by fans after their former hero Robbie Savage did not make a return to St Andrews last Saturday.
The Blues' official website had advertised the match with Blackburn Rovers as "the return of Robbie Savage", despite an agreement that he would not play in the fixture put in place when the player joined Rovers in January.
According to reports, fans are even considering reporting the club to Trading Standards over the way the match was billed.
The brother of murdered hostage Ken Bigley has said that Tony Blair is not fit to be Prime Minister.
Paul Bigley, whose brother Ken was beheaded by Iraqi militants, accused him of making a "gravely impaired decision" by going to war.
And he called on the British electorate to think of his dead brother and all the soldiers who died in Iraq when deciding who to vote for on Thursday.
Mr Bigley is backing Reg Keys ? the father of a murdered Midland Red Cap - in his bid to unseat Mr Blair at the General Election and is urging others to do so.
Tony Blair and Michael Howard have made whistle-stop visits to Midland seats as a new poll showed Labour under pressure in marginal constituencies.
Mr Blair was heckled by pro-hunting campaigner Otis Ferry, the son of rock star Bryan Ferry, as he visited The Wrekin in Shropshire.
And there were rowdy scenes as Conservative activists clashed with Labour supporters while the Tory leader make a speech in Tamworth, Staffordshire.
Both are marginal Labour seats which the Conservatives could win.
