Non-doms banned from making political donations

Posted on

A new l;aw was created last Friday. Called the Political Parties and Elections Act 2009 it bans non-domiciled people from making significant donations to UK political parties.

I am delighted to have played a small part in the intense lobbying by Labour MPs to enact this change.

Unfortunately the new law does not go as far as I wanted with regard to companies.

But it is another step in the right direction, and another win for the long tem campaign I have been involved in ion the influence of non-doms on UK politics.
