New ConDem Lobbying Legislation Being Pushed Through Parliament Will Severely Limit Spending Of Groups Such As 38 Degrees In Run-up To 2015 Election

Transparency of lobbying, non-party campaigning and trade union administration Bill

‘In relation to campaigning by people or organisations who are not political parties, the Bill changes the spending limits that such people or organisations can spend in an election campaign and the level of spending at which they are required to register with the Electoral Commission. The Bill also changes the way in which spending above a specified level by a non-party is treated for the purpose of party spending limits when it is targeted at achieving the electoral success of a political party. The Bill introduces geographical limits on the amount that non-party campaigners can spend in a particular constituency. The Bill also increases transparency in relation to spending by non-parties by requiring them to publish and record more information about their spending, donations, accounts and board members. Lastly the Bill clarifies and extends the Electoral Commission’s duty to monitor and take all reasonable steps to secure compliance with regulatory requirements, including those inserted by the Bill.’  http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/2013-2014/0097/en/14097en.htm

38 Degrees has asked those unhappy with this to email Chloe Smith.

  1. I’ve been banging out tweets with the petition link on it. Also linked to when Smith was on Newsnight and Paxman tore her to shreds.
