Tory ads won’t come out of Hampstead and Kilburn budget

A TORY wraparound ad covering last week’s Ham and High newspaper (and web ads on both the CNJ and Ham and High websites) will not come out of the local Conservative campaign spending budget.

The cost of taking over the front page of a newspaper with a picture of Theresa May would’ve made a big dent in the £13k spending cap on local campaigns, but the Conservative campaign sources say that because the ads did not mention Hampstead and Kilburn candidate Claire-Louise Leyland by name, the costs are racked up centrally and form part of the national spending allowances.

Both Labour and the Tories are thought to have run close to the spending limit in this constituency.
