2017 General Election cost over £140m

The Cabinet Office has revealed that June's snap General Election cost taxpayers more than £140 million.

The figures, released by Minister Chris Skidmore, showed that £98 million of that sum was spent on returning officers' fees, while the remaining £42.5 million was spent on delivering election literature.

It has been reported that the cost is slightly below the approximate £142 million spent on last year's EU referendum.
