Rishi Sunak pointedly refused to back Suella Braverman’s assertions that she had done nothing wrong following her speeding charge last year as he mulls whether to launch an investigation into her actions.

The Prime Minister has demanded the Home Secretary hand him further information around claims she asked civil servants to arrange a private speed awareness course after she was caught speeding.

Mr Sunak must decide whether to launch a full inquiry into whether she may have breached the ministerial code by seeking special dispensation when she was handed a speeding offence last summer.

He held talks with the Cabinet minister and with his independent ethics adviser Sir Laurie Magnus on Monday in an attempt to ascertain the full facts and if they warranted another ministerial probe.

Fielding questions in the Commons off the back of his visit to Japan for the G7 summit, the Prime Minister told MPs: “I have always been clear that where issues like this are raised, they should be dealt with properly and they should be dealt with professionally.

“Since I have returned from the G7, I have been receiving information on the issues raised, I have met with both the independent adviser and the Home Secretary. I have asked for further information and I will update on the appropriate course of action in due course.”
