In a letter to a parliamentary committee that issued a report in July related to Greensill's collapse, released on Friday by the same committee, Sunak said he had accepted its call for reform of the mechanism used by Greensill, known as the "appointed representatives regime". Sunak said in the letter, first reported by the Financial Times, that the Treasury had already started to review the regime, including legislative reforms to strengthen the oversight of appointed representatives to prevent opportunities for abuse of the system.
(Reuters) -British pub operators reported a rebound in sales on Thursday, as drinkers returned after months of lockdowns, but flagged a labour crunch that could strain the industry ahead of a busy holiday season. The hospitality sector has suffered from prolonged closures of pubs and hotels over the last 18 months and still faces the risk of renewed restrictions should any spike in infections becomes unmanageable.

KYIV (Reuters) -Ukraine's parliament passed a law on Thursday to order "oligarchs" to register and stay out of politics, a day after an attempt to kill a top aide to President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, which officials said could have been a response to the reform.

If you want something different, there’s only the Jaguar F-Pace, Lexus NX or Alfa Romeo Stelvio – and now the Genesis GV70.
