Mr Redwood’s intervention during the committee stage of the European Union Referendum Bill, 16 June 2015

John Redwood (Wokingham) (Con): Would my hon. Friend like to confirm that it is a principle of fairness in all British elections and referendums that individuals—Ministers as well—participate on whichever side they wish under a single campaign, for yes or for no, which has proper controls over expenditure and publications? Does he also acknowledge that there cannot be a third category of intervention by the Government, because that would break the normal rules of campaign funding and control?

Sir William Cash (Stone) (Con): I completely agree with my right hon. Friend.
