(2) what donations were notified to the Commission (a) late and (b) on time where the donation was found to be impermissible in each year for which figures are available; who the (i) donor and (ii) donee was in each case; and on what date (A) the donation was received and (B) the Commission was notified in each case;

(3) what donations were notified to the Commission (a) late and (b) on time by each political party in each year for which figures are available; and what steps were taken against each political party for late notification in each case.

I am advised that the answers to the hon. Member’s questions are voluminous. I will therefore write to the hon. Member, have a copy of my letters placed in the Library, and ask the Electoral Commission to place a copy of the letters on their website.
