Dear Abdul Hai
Freedom of Information Act 2000 - 4893511
Thank you for your request for information which we received on 11 December 2019.
Your request was: 
"What monitoring if any does MHCLG do of local government during election times? 
If you do monitoring than can I have any reports since 2010?
This request has been considered under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
I am writing to advise you that I have established that the information you requested 
is not held by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. 
The Department does not carry out any monitoring of local government during 
election times and therefore there are no monitoring reports.
