Suella Braverman insists ‘nothing untoward’ with speed awareness course as she faces questions by MPs

Political Editor

Rishi Sunak says he is waiting for more information about how Suella Braverman dealt with her punishment for speeding last summer before he decides whether to launch an investigation under the Ministerial Code.

In the Commons, the Home Secretary was repeatedly questioned over whether she asked civil servants to help her avoid a group speed awareness course.

She refused to explain – insisting that she’d paid the fine and nothing untoward had happened.
