Rishi Sunak Under Investigation by Sleaze Commissioner mdi-fullscreen

Parliamentary Standards Commissioner Daniel Greenberg has launched yet another investigation… this time into the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. The probe concerns a potential failure to declare an interest, amid questions over whether a childcare business his family has shares in stands to benefit from new policies in last month’s Budget. A Downing Street spokesperson said:

“We are happy to assist the Commissioner to clarify how this has been transparently declared as a Ministerial interest.”

Greenberg’s only been in the job since January…

UPDATE:  Angela Rayner makes a fair point

“This Government’s failure to update the rules or publish a register of ministers’ interests in nearly a year has left a transparency black hole which is enabling the Prime Minister and those he has appointed to dodge proper scrutiny of their affairs. If Rishi Sunak has got nothing to hide, he should commit to publishing the register before May’s elections so the public can see for themselves.”
Though Rishi claims he has declared his interest, writing to the Commons Liaison Committee to say that his wife’s minority stake in Koru Kids has been declared to the Cabinet Office and will be included in the revised version of the list of ministerial interests. Oops.
