In the run-up to the UK General Election, the Commission – like most other public sector bodies – is required to communicate in accordance with the 2019 General Election guidance. While the Commission is independent from government, adhering to this guidance ensures we avoid undermining our role in providing impartial, trusted advice to ministers in the future.

These rules apply to our media engagement, website, events, publications and social media from midnight on Wednesday 6 November until a new government is formed.

During this period, we are not in a position to publish new strategies, comment or analysis, so please be aware that this will mean our external activity is reduced – though we are very much continuing all other activity in line with our wider work programme and objectives.
