Help from donors
Mr Wright said: 'MPs and political parties do need access to funding. Without it, we cannot employ campaigns staff, pay rent for offices, or print our local newsletters. These are all important, because they allow us to report back to our constituents the work we are doing on their behalf. Campaigning activity also helps to engage people in the democratic process of elections.'
