“We will be very happy to help the parliamentary inquiry clarify all the evidence,” the British Prime Minister’s Office commented on information about the review, which was launched by the Comptroller of the Commons, Daniel Greenberg, last week. But the media only reported on it on Monday.
Sunak faces suspicion of failing to list his wife’s interests in a mandatory asset declaration, which MPs are required to update without delay. During parliamentary committee meetings, its members must disclose relevant financial interests or benefits, whether direct or indirect, that they might have, have or expect to have.
Sunak’s wife Akshata Murty is one of the investors in the Koru Kids agency. She is supposed to use the pilot program of the Ministry of Finance, which offers 1200 pounds (almost 32 thousand crowns) to people who train for the position of nanny through private agencies such as Koru Kids.
In addition, the prime minister, who spoke before the relevant parliamentary committee at the end of March about changes in child care, did not mention his wife’s possible conflict of interest. When asked by opposition MP Catherine McKinnell if there was anything else he wanted to comment on, he said: “No, I’ve published everything in the normal way.”
Labor deputy leader Angela Rayner accused Sunak of avoiding “proper scrutiny” because the list of asset declarations had not been updated for almost a year. The revised version is to be published every six months. The last time this happened was last June.
The British Prime Minister caused a scandal. He was walking the dog at leisure
