Angela Rayner responds to reports Electoral Commission has questioned the Conservative Party over a payment towards the makeover of Downing Street flat

Angela Rayner MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, responding to reports the Electoral Commission has questioned the Conservative Party over a payment towards the makeover of Boris Johnson’s Downing Street flat, said:

“The Prime Minister cannot keep on dodging questions about the redecoration of his flat in Downing Street.

“The British people have a right to know how much money has been spent and where that money came from.”

“Given the Government’s track record of handing out contracts to Conservative Party donors and cronies, if the money to pay for this work has indeed come from donors then the public will rightly be demanding answers over what access and special favours these donors may well be expecting in return.”
