Political parties 'should get more taxpayer funding'

Political parties should get an extra £23m of taxpayers' money to reduce reliance on "big money" donations, an independent inquiry has said.

The Committee for Standards in Public Life also recommended a £10,000 annual cap on individual donations from 2015.

Outlining the proposals, Chairman Sir Christopher Kelly said the taxpayer's contribution amounted to little more than a 1st class stamp.
