Conservative Party releases election expenses after court action
The Conservative Party has produced documents about its spending during the general election after the Electoral Commission took court action.
The watchdog applied to the High Court to force the party to disclose the documents, as part of an investigation into an alleged spending rules breach.
Within hours, the commission said it had received the documents from the party and was reviewing them.
The allegations relate to accommodation costs of activists on its “battle bus”.
The Conservative Party acknowledges that due to an “administrative error” some accommodation costs for the activists may not have been properly registered.
A small mistake, could happen to anyone?
