Mayoral Referendum

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 6 July 2006

To ask the hon. Member for Gosport, representing the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission what guidance the Electoral Commission has issued on the classification of expenditure on (a) gathering signatures for a mayoral petition and (b) campaigning for or against a mayoral referendum. (82995)

The Electoral Commission informs me that it does not issue guidance on the classification of expenditure for mayoral referendums as it has no statutory remit in respect of such referendums.
