Thanks for your letter @amandamilling

I’ll take a look when you reply to the letters I sent you on 3 and 11 August regarding your Co-Chair Ben Elliot, on 23 August on the Leaders’ Group and on 24 August on the PM charging taxpayers to fly to Teeside.

Reminders below 🧵
On 3 August I wrote to ask what action you were going to take against Mr Elliot following reports that his company arranged for its clients to access Covid-19 testing in April 2020 – a time when care homes couldn’t access the tests many of staff and residents needed.

No reply.
On 11 August, I wrote to you about allegations in the FT that Mr Elliot secretly communicated with foreign ambassadors about the Conservative Friends of the Middle East and North Africa group without disclosing his private business relationship to its only shareholder.

No reply.
On 23 August I wrote to ask you why – fifteen months after committing to do so – you had still not published the list of members of the Leaders’ Group of donors.

No reply.
On 24 August I wrote to ask you to explain Boris Johnson’s decision to fly to Teesside Airport on a taxpayer-funded jet, when he then participated in campaigning activity on behalf of the Conservative Party.

No reply.
When it comes to campaign financing, ethical standards, and where senior Tory officials draw the line between private business activities and public responsibilities, can you confirm there’s one rule for those at the top of the Conservative Party and other rule for everyone else?

The Conservative Party has accepted tens of thousands of pounds in donations from companies that only exist on paper.

Yesterday I wrote to the Chief Executive of the Electoral Commission to call for an investigation into two potential breaches of electoral law.

A thread 🧵
Donation 1

According to the Electoral Commission website, the Conservative Party received and accepted a donation of £10,000 from Stridewell Estates Limited on 20 November 2019.

Stridewell's director was the property magnate and Tory donor Brian Gillies.…
The Companies House website states that Stridewell Estates Limited was dissolved on 8 November 2016 – more than three years before this donation was received.
