Sunak and Starmer clash over Nadhim Zahawi tax scandal at PMQs

Political Editor

Rishi Sunak has insisted he will wait for his ethics adviser to fully investigate whether Conservative Chairman Nadhim Zahawi broke ministerial rules over his tax affairs – before deciding on his future in the Cabinet.

During clashes at Prime Minister’s Questions, the Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer said Mr Zahawi should be sacked straight away. But Mr Sunak insisted he was determined to follow due process.
