Thompsons reveals £17k Labour donation

Thompsons Solicitors donated £17,000 cash to the Labour Party in the two weeks before the May general election ­delivered a hung parliament.

This comes on top of the £176,000 donated in cash and services by the firm to the party since 2001. Thompsons chief executive Stephen Cavalier said: ­”Thompsons is a labour movement firm that believes a Labour government best represents the interests of those we ­represent – people who’ve been injured, mistreated at work or subjected to ­discrimination or injustice.”
