Overseas Electors Bill

Explanatory Notes

Parliamentary approval for financial costs or for charges imposed

82 A money resolution is required for the Bill, to cover the likely increase resulting from clause 1 of the Bill in public expenditure payable under other Acts. 

83 In particular:

expenses incurred by electoral registration officers (in dealing with new applications for registration of overseas electors), and

changes to electoral management software used by electoral registration officers, 

are likely to result in increase to the revenue support grant paid under Part 5 of the Local Government Finance Act to local authorities, who are responsible for funding electoral registration officers.
