Rishi Sunak faces probe over budget ‘benefit’ to wife’s childcare agency

Rishi Sunak’s link to a childcare company boosted by Jeremy Hunt’s recent Budget has been included in a new list of ministerial interests – but only as a footnote.

The new register – updated for the first time in a year – contains a reference to the Koru Kids firm that Mr Sunak’s wife holds shares in amid a row over declarations.

Mr Sunak is under investigation by parliament’s sleaze watchdog over allegations of a possible failure to declare the shares held by Akshata Murty in the childcare agency.
