Labour demands 'urgent investigation' into the Conservatives after Boris Johnson's party declares donations from companies that don't exist.
EXCLUSIVE: Labour says Electoral Commission must open "urgent investigation" into potentially illegal donations.
Insider reported that the Conservative Party received donations from nonexistent companies.
In a letter to Bob Posner, the commission's chief executive, on Tuesday, Labour Party Chair Anneliese Dodds called for an investigation to examine three donations totalling £20,000 made to the party by two companies, Stridewell Estates and Unionist Buildings.
Under the law, the Electoral Commission can levy fines as a sanction of up to £20,000 per offense.
"The law needs changing so political donations from companies can only derive from genuine commercial activities.".
The Conservatives had previously told Insider: "Donations to the Conservative Party are properly and transparently declared to the Electoral Commission and are published by them.". »
