Parliament’s standards watchdog has opened an investigation into Rishi Sunak over a possible failure to declare an interest.
An update to the parliamentary website shows the investigation, opened on Thursday, relates to paragraph six of the code.
‘Members must always be open and frank in declaring any relevant interest in any proceeding of the House or its committees, and in any communications with ministers, members, public officials or public office holders,’ the section reads.
A No 10 spokeswoman responded: ‘We are happy to assist the commissioner to clarify how this has been transparently declared as a ministerial interest.’
