Doughty Involved In Cash Row?

Doughty Involved In Cash Row?

Forest chairman Nigel Doughty is expected to appear in Labour Party records to be released this week by the Electoral Commission.

Mr Doughty, 49, chairman of Doughty Hanson, a leading UK-based private equity firm, pledged £250,000 to the party in May last year, according to Electoral Commission figures previously reported in the Post.

The chairman has a personal fortune estimated at £120m and has invested more than £40m in Nottingham Forest.

Sir Ronald Cohen and Jonathan Aisbitt are also thought to have given £250,000 each during the final quarter of 2006.

Mr Aisbitt is thought to be worth £98m - much of which he made in the flotation of merchant bank Goldman Sachs, where he was a partner.

Sir Ronald started the private equity vehicle Apax with three friends in the 1970s. He is believed to be worth £260m.

A Labour Party spokesman said: 'All donations given to the Labour Party fully comply with guidelines laid down by the Electoral Commission who publish them regularly on their website.'

Ok, Doughty made a donation to the labour party. Why is this important?
