Rayner denies wrongdoing over council house sale amid police review- The deputy leader of Labour claims she can offer tax advice provided at the time following a Tory complaint to Manchester police.

After the police declared they were reevaluating their decision to close the case without opening an investigation, Angela Rayner maintained she did “absolutely nothing wrong” when she sold her council home.

The deputy leader of Labour expressed her confidence that she had not broken any regulations to BBC Radio 4’s Today program.
After receiving a complaint about the force’s handling of the matter from Conservative MP James Daly, Greater Manchester police are reevaluating their decision to not look into allegations that Rayner may have violated electoral law.

The police are under intense pressure from the Tories to look into allegations that Rayner had to pay capital gains tax (CGT) on the sale of the council house before she was elected to parliament. The allegations that she had neglected to appropriately declare her primary abode were made in a book by the former Tory deputy chairman, Lord Ashcroft.
