Labour claims PM may have breached election rules

Labour claims PM may have breached election rules
Labour MP Michael Dugher has written to the Cabinet Secretary accusing the Prime Minister of potentially breaching rules that forbid the use of taxpayers' money for party political campaigning.

The letter to Sir Jeremy Heywood focuses on the Cabinet's visit to Bristol yesterday.

In his letter, Mr Dugher states: "There are strict rules dealing with propriety in the run up to elections. As Cabinet Office guidance from before Mayoral elections this year states, care needs to be taken over government activities that could have a bearing on the election, particularly to ensure that public resources are not used for 'party political purposes'".

He asks: "What guidance was sought by the Government as to whether this visit was in keeping with rules on party political campaigning?"
