On the announcement of a general election, the Cabinet Office issues guidance on the handling of departmental business, including visits to government establishments, during the pre-election period. The 2005 general election guidance is in the Libraries of both Houses, and can be found on the Cabinet Office website http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/media/cabinetoffice/propriety_and_ethics/assets/electguide.pdf.
