Brown voices fury at Hain donation row

Prime minister expresses disappointment over donations disclosure bungle

Peter Hain has apologised to Gordon Brown over the failure to disclose the
full amount of donations to his Labour deputy leadership campaign.

According to the Guardian Brown spoke to Hain via telephone where he
expressed his anger and disappointment at the disclosure failure. Hain
reportedly apologised to the prime minister.

Earlier this week it emerged that due to ‘administrative failures’ within his
campaign for the deputy leadership Hain had not disclosed certain donations to
the Electoral Commission within the set deadline.

Hain said he had since undertaken a full audit of all donations and would
make a full disclosure to the commission by the middle of January.
