Candidate correspondence 

In the lead up to this year’s General Elections AT expects to receive a number of queries or requests from candidates. In the interests of transparency and to demonstrate political neutrality AT will ask, wherever practical, for those requests to be made in writing. The requests and AT’s responses will then be published here.
