HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c124W
Mr. John

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will list the regulations regarding the sale of goods by or on behalf of a candidate in an election as an item to be included amongst election expenses, and, in particular, the regulations as to the sale of such goods at less than cost price.

Mr. Carlisle:

There are no such regulations; nor do Sections 60 to 65 of the Representation of the People Act, 1949, which deal with electoral expenses, cover matters of this kind.
