Mr. David Winnick accordingly presented a Bill to provide for a limit on the amount of money which may be spent by or on behalf of a political party during the period of a general election campaign; to require companies to establish a political fund from which all political donations shall be made; to provide for a ballot of shareholders and employees before a political fund is established; to ensure an entitlement for each shareholder to an additional dividend from the company in lieu of any donations to which such a shareholder has objected; and to require political parties represented in the House of Commons to publish reports and accounts: And the same was read the First time; and ordered to be read a Second time upon Friday 20 April and to be printed.
