Anneliese Dodds comments on reports in the Sunday Times about donations and peerages

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour Party Chair, commenting on reports that benefactors who donate £3 million to the Conservative Party and serve as party treasurer are granted peerages, said:

“It’s now clear that the cash for access culture at the heart of this Conservative government stems from the top and reaches through every sinew of the Prime Minister’s party.

“This stench of sleaze emanating from Boris Johnson’s government grows by the day, with even a former Conservative prime minister calling his administration ‘politically corrupt’.

“Labour would stamp out sleaze, with a tougher system to restore the public’s faith in our democracy and political system.”
