Political party donation figures for the last quarter of 2016 are out:

Conservative and Unionist Party – £3,610,983

Liberal Democrats – £1,972,904

Labour Party – £1,970,055

Green Party – £46,228

Co-operative Party – 39,750

UK Independence Party (UKIP) – £33,228

Women’s Equality Party – £30,000
