The majority of MPs voted to apply the requirements for transparency surrounding political donations and loans in-force in Great Britain to Northern Ireland.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That the draft Transparency of Donations and Loans etc. (Northern Ireland Political Parties) Order 2018, which was laid before this House on 23 November 2017, be approved.
The explanatory notes to the order explain:
- Maintaining confidentiality in respect of Northern Ireland political donations and loans has been considered necessary to date to protect donors from the risk of intimidation.
- In January 2017, the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland wrote to the Northern Ireland political parties to seek their views on moving to full transparency. All parties that responded agreed that full transparency should be introduced
