Miliband’s donor meetings: the full list

The Labour leader publishes a list of his meetings with donors who have given more than £7,500.

By George Eaton

As he promised he would, Ed Miliband has just released a list of his meetings with donors and trade union general secretaries. Labour has outflanked the Conservatives by including anyone who has donated more than £7,500 to the party; the Tories only included those who donated more than £50,000.

For reasons that are unclear, Miliband’s meetings with Ken Livingstone are also listed. They include an eye-catching dinner at Miliband’s home on 23 March, shortly after the Labour leader received that letter from Jewish supporters expressing concern over Livingstone’s now-infamous remarks.
