Lord Tyler – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Cabinet Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Tyler on 2016-05-18.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what consideration they have given to reallocating public funds presently allocated to (1) candidate and party election addresses, and (2) government advertising, to enable a cost-neutral package of reform of the rules on political party finance, including a cap on donations.

Lord Bridges of Headley

The Government is open to dialogue on practical measures to reform the funding of political parties. This can only be achieved by cross party discussions from the political parties themselves.
