CONTROVERSIAL businessman David Rowland gave the Tories pounds 137,000 weeks before stepping down as party Treasurer.

The tycoon - who is worth an estimated pounds 730million -helped the Conservatives rake in a record pounds 12.3million between April and June this year.

The 65-year-old gave more than pounds 2.7million to the Tories in the 12 months running up to the general election.

Once described in the Commons as a "shady financier", Mr Rowland announced last week he was quitting to concentrate on his own global businesses. The Tories have since been hit by revelations about his business interests and private life.
