Rishi Sunak says he is not being investigated in betting scandal probe | Politics News

Rishi Sunak has said he is not being investigated by the Gambling Commission as part of its probe into bets placed on the date of the election.

The prime minister also said the Conservatives would conduct their own internal investigation into the allegations that have dogged the latter part of his campaign.

Speaking to reporters in Edinburgh, Mr Sunak said his party “will act” if the Conservatives’ own inquiry into the alleged betting scandal finds wrongdoing.

“The Gambling Commission is independent of government – it’s independent of me,” he said.

“I don’t have the details of their investigation, right? They don’t report to me, I don’t have the details, but what I can tell you is, in parallel we’ve been conducting our own internal inquiries and of course will act on any relevant findings or information from that and pass it on to the Gambling Commission.”

When asked whether he had ever bet on politics whilst being an MP, Mr Sunak replied: “No.”
