Rishi Sunak has decided not to launch an ethics investigation into the Home Secretary for her handling of a speeding offence.

The UK Prime Minister said he had come to the conclusion that brave soleThe actions “do not amount to a violation of the ministerial code”, following claims that he had asked public officials to seek special treatment to avoid penalty points on his driver’s license.

On Wednesday, Sunak said he had consulted Sir Laurie Magnus, his ethics adviser, who said “no further investigation is necessary”.

In a letter to Braverman, the prime minister said it would have been “better” to “avoid giving rise to the perception of impropriety”, but added that she apologized, expressed regret and provided a full account of the facts.
