Political Parties: Funding

Volume 696: debated on Tuesday 20 November 2007

asked Her Majesty’s Government:

What were the points of agreement that had been reached before the interparty talks on fundraising and campaign spending by political parties broke down. [HL6]

In his press release following the suspension of the interparty talks on 30 October 2007, Sir Hayden Phillips published the draft proposals that he had put to the parties in late August during the negotiations. I have placed a copy of Sir Hayden’s press release and his proposals in the Libraries of both Houses.
