Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is under investigation by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards over potential breaches of rules on earnings and gifts.

The Parliamentary website showed on Monday that Kathryn Stone was looking at whether he broke two sections of the MPs’ code of conduct on registering interests.

Her investigation, which began on Wednesday, was looking at the registration of interests under the section on employment and earnings.

A second matter being looked at was a possible breach of the section concerning gifts, benefits and hospitality from UK sources.
