Party funding

The Leader was asked about a Guardian report that he was intending to "ram through" changes to the arrangements. He said he did not agree that was an accurate description of the report. The factual position was that Government awaited the report by Sir Hayden Phillips. He hoped it would be possible to reach a consensus with the other parties, as he had been able to achieve when he previously held responsibility for party funding as Home Secretary. It remained to be seen whether the co-operation which he then secured would be forthcoming. Asked about the timing of Sir Hayden’s report, he said he had no precise information on whether it would be either side of Christmas.
