Section 133 : Power to vary provisions about election expenses

229.Section 133 substitutes a new section 76A of the Representation of the People Act 1983. Under the existing section 76A the various monetary limits in sections 73, 74, 75 and 76 of the 1983 Act may only be varied, by order, to the extent necessary to keep pace with inflation. The revised section 76A preserves that power, but also enables more significant variations in the monetary limits in question where the Electoral Commission so recommends.
