Detail of outcome
Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts has published his independent review of third party campaigning. It looks at Part 2 of the Transparency in Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014.
‘Third parties’ are organisations or individuals that are actively campaigning at elections but are not political parties or candidates.
This call for views and evidence is in 4 broad sections. They:
- examine underlying issues associated with third party campaigning, and ask what the purpose and principles of a robust regulatory system should be
- ask for views on the definitions and concepts of third party campaigning
- examine the current elements of the regulatory system
- explore what the future of third party campaigning may look like
