LABOUR’S EMILY BROTHERS CALLS FOR EXPLANATION OVER TORY GENERAL ELECTION EXPENSES OVER SPEND

TUESDAY 1 MARCH 2016

Emily Brothers, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate at last year’s General Election, has called on Paul Scully, the successful Conservative Candidate, to account for over spending on expenses. Ms Brothers has also called on the Conservative Party nationally to explain why they have failed to comply with election standards. She said:
"Paul Scully believes no wrongdoing has happened, but it seems battle buses were turning up to ferry people to his seat and this was described as 'national spend'. It isn’t an adequate explanation and concerns shouldn’t be dismissed.
“National spend in elections should be about billboard posters, party broadcasts and generic leaflets. It should not be used to support specific local campaigns. That’s why both Paul Scully and the National Tory party needs to explain how they can really justify this sort of spend."

The Daily Mirror reported today that 24 Members of Parliament exceeded expenses limits at last year’s General Election:
