HC Deb 02 July 1964 vol 697 cc272-3W
68. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why, in considering proposals for electoral reform, he will not agree to an amendment of the law to ensure that any candidate or elector may on petition have the right to examine the balance sheet of, and contributions made to, any political party contesting the forthcoming General Election.

Mr. Woodhouse

Election law is concerned with expenditure incurred on behalf of an individual candidate and not with the finances of political parties.
