The Electoral Commission is the independent watchdog that monitors elections and party and political finances in the UK.

In the run up to the elections on the 8th of June every political party must complete six donations and loan reports setting out what donations and loans over £7,500 they have received between 3 May and 8 June.

This dataset was retrieved on Tuesday the 24th of May and includes all donations and loans above £7,500 reported in the first two weeks, i.e. from 3 May to 19 May.
