£37.7m in large donations for the Tories

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, responding to figures showing the Tories received £37.7m in large donations in the last three months of 2019, said:


“For years the UK economy has failed to work for the majority of people in this country, instead benefiting an increasingly small few in the City of London.


“These latest donations confirm that the Conservative Party is the Party of this few, and that they cannot be trusted to govern in the interests of the many.


“The time is long overdue for an overhaul of our political finance rules, which fail to protect our democracy from undue influence.”
