Boris Johnson has received £1million from a Tory donor to help him with his work as a former Prime Minister.
r Johnson, who was ousted from office last summer, recorded a £1million donation from Christopher Harborne to the office of Boris Johnson Ltd in the latest update of MPs’ Register of Interests.
Mr Harborne was among the donors who helped fund the Brexit Party and has also donated to the Conservatives.
The limited liability company set up by the ex-Prime Minister does not carry out any commercial business and functions solely as a private office to support him as a former Prime Minister.
According to the Parliamentary statements, Mr Johnson continues to reside in property linked to wealthy Tory donor Lord Bamford.
He explained the “use of the accommodation for myself and my family from December 2022 to January 2023 at an estimated value of £10,000” provided by Lord Anthony and Lady Carole Bamford.
Since leaving office last September, Mr Johnson has declared more than £1million in speaking fees.
In December, he recorded around £300,000 for two separate speeches.
