Commission Chairman

Volume 454: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

To ask the hon. Member for Gosport, representing the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission what factors affected the decision on the period of office of the Chairman of the Electoral Commission on his recent reappointment. (108482)

Such decisions are not matters for the Speaker’s Committee. The Secretary of the Speaker’s Committee has written to my hon. Friend describing the procedure that is being followed in relation to the re-appointment of the Chairman of the Electoral Commission. I have asked him to place a copy of this letter in the Library of the House.
