Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, tells Conservatives to reject Aquind donations after MP broke parliamentary rules

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, responding to the news that a Conservative MP has been told to apologise for breaking parliamentary rules after lobbying for a company he took a £10,000 donation from, said:

“The public will rightly be disgusted by Russian tycoons who bankroll the Tory Party being able to buy influence over our politics in this way. This is an open and shut case of cash for questions.

“The Tory Party should immediately cease taking any donations from Aquind, as Labour has already called for. Our democracy shouldn’t be up for sale to Tory donors.”
