Party funding: Lib Dems outraise Labour from non-trade union sources

According to the latest figures for declared donations* to political parties, the Liberal Democrats have brought in more money than Labour from private donors and companies (i.e. excluding trade unions), making it 11 quarters out of the last 13 where that has been true:

  • Liberal Democrats: £454,747
  • Labour £353,455

Good work once again by all those involved in Liberal Democrat fundraising.

* i.e. donations above the threshold for reporting to the Electoral Commission.
