Spending by candidates in Peterborough at General Election revealed
The spending by the candidates in Peterborough at the General Election has been revealed by the Electoral Commission.
Conservative Paul Bristow won the seat in December by defeating Labour’s Lisa Forbes. Mr Bristow (£12,919) also spent the most amount of money during the campaign - narrowly ahead of Mike Greene from the Brexit Party. However, the total sums are below the amount spent during the by-election in the city last June where the Tories spent more than £91,000, followed by £82,700 from Labour and £76,600 from the Brexit Party. At a General Election parties are allowed to spend a maximum of £30,000 per constituency.
