• How much cash have developers given the East Devon Tories?

  • The question was prompted by the inquiry into the Prime Minister’s ‘cash for policies’ scandal and revelations that big developers have ploughed millions into Tory party coffers at a national level, prior to the planning laws being weakened last month.

    My question is as follows:

    “Given that the Prime Minister has said he will have an inquiry into “cash for policies” will the Leader of the Council, Chairman of the Development Management Committee and Chairman of the East Devon Local Plan Panel be disclosing which developers they have met and whether these developers have made donations to the local, regional or national Conservative party and, if so, how much”.

    The format of full council meetings means that I will receive a written answer on Wednesday evening at the start of the meeting and am then entitled to ask a supplementary question.
