HC Deb 22 May 1979 vol 967 c102W
Mr. Cockeram

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to increase the deposit required from candidates at a general election from £150 to a more realistic figure; and if he will index-link this figure in line with the cost of living.

Mr. Whitelaw

I shall be considering this and other electoral matters in the light of experience of the elections held on 3 May and 7 June.
