6. To ask the hon. Member for Gosport, representing the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission what steps the Electoral Commission is taking to share information with the Registrar of Members’ Interests. (254303)

The Electoral Commission informs me that it has agreed with the Registrar the changes necessary to harmonise the Rules relating to the conduct of Members with the statutory requirements of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000. These changes are set out in the Fourth Report of the Committee on Standards and Privileges which was published on 2 February 2009.
