Peter Hain could face a police investigation into his failure to declare £103,000 donated to his deputy leadership campaign.

The Electoral Commission is beginning its investigations into Mr Hain’s non-declaration of donation he received after May last year, with preliminary findings expected by the end of the week. And although the commission only has powers of chastisement as it only deals with parties and not individuals it can refer the case to the police if Mr Hain is found in breach of the rules governing party donations.
