Section 95 and Schedule 11 : Control of donations to recognised third parties

193.Section 95 gives effect to Schedule 11 which provides for controls on donations to recognised third parties for the purpose of meeting controlled expenditure. Part I of Schedule 11 defines donations to recognised third parties in terms equivalent to those in sections 50 to 53 in respect of donations to registered parties. Part II of Schedule 10 applies restrictions on the acceptance of donations equivalent to those in sections 54 to 61. Part III of Schedule 11 requires that the return as to controlled expenditure, required under section 96, must include a statement giving details of the source and amount of donations of more than £5,000 (including aggregate sums). The statement must also detail donations received, but rejected, from impermissible or unidentifiable donors. The requirements of this section and Schedule do not apply to registered parties (other than a minor party) given that they will be subject to the ongoing controls on donations set out in Part IV.
