The Financing of Political Parties: (5) The Bill. Accumulated public property

Clause 35 of the Bill specifies that there can be no donations originating from public bodies unless there is a specific authorisation in a legal instrument. There is reference to broadcasting as an example.

There is however public property which political parties have been accumulating primarily for use as party political clubs. This is not addressed by the Bill. It is necessary to ensure at all times that rent paid for the use of public property is commercial. This is to be done through administrative measures, ad hoc measures if necessary.  A mechanism for the regular revision of rents has to be introduced.
