answer text <p>Any allegations of violations of electoral law are for the independent Electoral Commission to investigate. The Electoral Commission has published reports on its investigations into Vote Leave, BeLeave and Leave.EU, and transferred those cases to other organisations independent of government to investigate. As a matter of principle the Government does not comment on live law enforcement investigations.</p> more like this

answer text <p>There are no plans to establish a Public Inquiry on the conduct of the EU referendum. The EU referendum was carried out based on legislation passed by Parliament and almost three quarters of the electorate took part. The EU referendum provisions were carefully scrutinised and ratified by Parliament. In line with the precedent for referendums, there was a six week period in which the formal result and administration of the EU Referendum could be challenged by judicial review. We treat the integrity and security of our democratic processes extremely seriously.</p><p> </p><p>If offences are alleged, it is right that they are investigated thoroughly by the appropriate agencies. That is what is happening at the moment and those agencies and investigations are independent of government.</p> more like this

answer text <p>To date, we have not seen evidence of successful interference in UK democratic processes, but we are not complacent. We know that certain states routinely use disinformation and other means as a foreign policy tool, and have seen evidence of this happening elsewhere. The Government has taken steps to ensure that there is a coordinated structure across all relevant UK authorities to defend against interference in British politics whether by Russia, or any other state.</p><p> </p><p>We treat the integrity and security of our democratic processes extremely seriously. The EU referendum provisions were carefully scrutinised and ratified by Parliament. In line with the precedent for referendums, there was a six week period in which the formal result and administration of the EU Referendum could be challenged by judicial review.</p><p> </p><p>The Electoral Commission is an independent organisation and its investigations are a matter for it alone. We must now allow the National Crime Agency space to proceed with a thorough investigation of this matter and I will not be commenting further on a live investigation.</p><p> </p><p>17.4 million people voted to leave the EU and that mandate should be respected.</p>
