§ Lord Greaves
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What progress is being made on the introduction of new regulations for imprints on election leaflets; and what is the timetable for their introduction. [HL1308]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department (Baroness Scotland of Asthal)
The Government are currently considering the views of both the Electoral Commission and the political parties on this issue. No decision has yet been taken on when the regulations will be made. It is, however, not practical to introduce the new provisions before the local elections this May.
