PM calls investigation into Tory chairman Zahawi’s tax bill

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is ordering an investigation into Conservative Party chairman Nadhim Zahawi’s tax affairs. Mr Zahawi paid a penalty to resolve a multimillion-pound tax dispute with HM Revenue & Customs between July and September last year, whilst he was serving as Chancellor of the Exchequer in Boris Johnson’s cabinet. The MP for Stratford-on-Avon has welcomed the investigation, saying: “I am confident I acted properly throughout.”.
