Chapter 16: Party funding in Britain

Michael Pinto-Duschinsky

Abstract

This chapter updates the author’s previous works on British political finance to include detailed information about party expenditures (national and local, routine and campaign) in the five-year period following the general election of 2010 and ending with the general election of 2015. It also provides information on the main sources of income of the largest parties. Limitations and potential pitfalls of party accounts published by the Electoral Commission under the terms of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 are discussed as well as the issue of indirect state funding of British parties, an unjustly neglected issue.
