The Commons disagree to Lords Amendment No 1 and propose Amendments 1A and 1B in lieu.

1A: Page 2, line 20, at end insert-

“( ) Regulations may amend subsection (3) so as to provide that communications made personally to a special adviser are within that subsection.”

1B: Page 2, line 30, at end insert-

““special adviser” means a person who serves the government in a position in the civil service of the State and whose appointment to that position meets the requirements applicable to that position set out in section 15(1) of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010.”

The Commons disagree to Lords Amendment No 26 for the following reason-

26A:Because a wider range of expenditure than it provides for should be included when attributing a third party’s expenditure to a particular constituency for the purposes of determining whether a limit on expenditure in that constituency has been exceeded.

Lords Amendment 27: Page 16, line 29, leave out “controlled” and insert “third party constituency”


27A: The Commons disagree to Lords Amendment No 27 for the following reason-
