British finance minister Rishi Sunak was found on Wednesday to have adhered to rules on conflicts of interest and the ministerial code in his and his family’s financial affairs, which had attracted sharp political and media criticism.

Sunak’s wife Akshata Murthy confirmed this month that she had “non-domiciled” status allowing her to pay tax in India rather than Britain, something the opposition Labour party said was at odds with Sunak’s role and his tax-raising plans.
