Recently, despite an ongoing police investigation into her living arrangements, Labour’s deputy leader, Angela Rayner, said she would not provide the “personal tax advice” she obtained on the selling of her municipal house.

Speaking on the Today show, Rayner expressed her certainty that she had not broken any laws while selling her council home and that she might not have to pay capital gains tax. She refused, claiming the confidential nature of her legal advice, to make it public. She said she would be happy to work with the authorities to get the data.

At the beginning of Labour’s local election campaign, Sir Keir Starmer, the leader of the party, declared that Rayner was innocent and endorsed her choice to keep the legal advice private.

Rayner emphasized the necessity for equal playing fields in transparency about tax affairs, and implied that he would be happy to release the advice if Conservative lawmakers did the same.

Rayner’s defense coincides with the announcement by Greater Manchester Police that they are reevaluating their original choice to not look into the claims pertaining to her living situation. Among these charges are claims of dodging capital gains tax and other infractions of election laws.

The main points of contention revolve around Rayner’s prior ownership of a Stockport municipal home and allegations that she might have lived somewhere other than the address she used to register to vote.

Rayner insists that she lived in the house she bought via the “right-to-buy” program, but concerns about her residency and tax obligations linger.

Greater Manchester Police conducted a reevaluation in response to a complaint made by Conservative MP James Daly, who claimed that the case had not been adequately investigated.

Rayner is under increasing pressure to respond to questions about her residency background and tax situation as the investigation goes on.
