Conservatives forfeit £101,500 in donations

Two illegal donations totalling £101,500 dating back to 2004 and 2006 have been forfeited by the Conservative Party.

The issue came to light after it was revealed that over £1m in donations taken by the Conservative Party and booked as being from RF Trustee Co Ltd were not in fact donations from the company but from a series of individuals.

As a result, the Conservative Party re-examined the donations and discovered it had accepted £1,500 in 2004 from an unidentifiable source and £100,000 in 2006 from Mrs Joanna Kate King, who was not on the electoral register at the time.
