The European Parliament’s advisory committee will look at whether Mr Farage broke rules by accepting funding from Leave campaigner Arron Banks. Nigel Farage said he did not declare the £450,000 sum to the European Parliament because he was about to leave politics and had been seeking a new life in the US. The committee will examine the case before advising the European Parliament President Antonio Tajani. The committee can meet on 4 June. MEPs found to have acted improperly can be reprimanded, their parliamentary allowance can be withheld or they can be banned from some activities. The payments from Arron Banks to Nigel Farage were revealed by a Channel 4 News investigation. Mr Farage confirmed that he was not talking to Channel 4 News, describing them as “political activists”, and said he would not allow the broadcaster to attend Brexit Party events. The editor of Channel 4 News, Ben de Pear, said on Twitter he hoped “to resolve our access ban… ASAP”.
