I have been asked to reply.

The Electoral Commission informs me that it has published a response to the White Paper, Party finance and expenditure in the United Kingdom, which is available on the Commission's website:


The Commission will now consider carefully all aspects of the Political Parties and Elections Bill relevant to its work before setting out its views in more detail prior to the Bill's second reading in the House of Commons.
