Control of campaign expenditure and controlled expenditure
20.Schedule 2 (which contains amendments of Schedules 9 and 10 to the 2000 Act) has effect.
Clause 20 brings into effect Schedule 2 of the Bill. This will reduce the existing expenditure limits in PPERA, by 15%, as recommended by the CSPL. It also brings the election campaign period for parliamentary general elections into line with the four month period for elections to the devolved legislatures and the European Parliament.
