Written answers (Question to Housing)

Information relating to the remuneration received by returning officers for carrying out their duties in respect of the 2019 local elections is not available in my Department.  The Local Elections Regulations 1995 makes provision in Part II for the appointment, duties and expenses of returning officers for local elections.  Article 8 of those Regulations provides that the expenses of the returning officer shall be met by the local authority.

My Department has compiled in tabular format attached, the names of the local returning officers appointed under article 4 of the Local Elections Regulations 1995 in respect of the local elections 2019; the names of the returning officers for each European Parliament constituency, appointed under section 16 of the European Parliament Elections Act 1997 in respect of the European Parliament elections 2019; and the names of the local returning officers for each county, city and city and county situate in a European Parliament constituency, appointed under section 17 of the European Parliament Elections Act 1997 in respect of the European Parliament elections 2019.
