State Financing Guidelines

Ministerial and Parliamentary Offices Acts

The Standards Commission has published Guidelines on the Parliamentary Activities Allowance.

Electoral Acts

The Standards Commission has published guidelines under the Electoral Acts for political parties concerning their ongoing requirements under the legislation with regard to exchequer funding.

In November 2006 the Standards Commission also published guidelines for qualified political parties regarding the use, for electoral purposes, of Exchequer funding provided under the Electoral Acts and the Party Leaders Allowance Act.

Please note that since the enactment of the Electoral (Amendment) (Political Funding) Act 2012 the figures contained in these guidelines are now out of date.
