£1,457,226 in donations to political parties have been reported to the Electoral Commission in the sixth and final weekly pre-poll report.
This compares to £231,333 in donations reported in the sixth weekly pre-poll report before the 2017 general election.
In total, across the six pre-poll donations reports, political parties in the UK reported receiving a combined total of £30,721,998 in donations.
Prior to the UK Parliamentary general election on 12 December, registered political parties were required to submit four weekly reports setting out the donations and loans over £7,500 that they have received between 6 November and 3 December 2019. Two further reports were required to be submitted after polling day for the period 4 December to 12 December 2019.
Registered non-party campaigners were also required to submit weekly donation reports setting out the donations they have received over £7,500. This information has been published alongside the political parties’ donations and loans reports.
This is the first UK Parliamentary general election to take place since legislation was introduced to allow information on donations and loans in Northern Ireland to be published. This is therefore the first general elections that pre-poll donations and loans reports have been published for parties and non-party campaigners in Northern Ireland.
