Rishi Sunak needs to be judged on the choices he makes quite than on his private wealth, a minister has insisted.

The newest Sunday Times Rich List revealed the private fortune of the Prime Minister and his spouse Akshata Murty surged by greater than £120 million over the previous yr.

Mr Sunak and Ms Murty’s wealth was £651 million within the newest record, hovering from £529 million in 2023.

John Glen, the Paymaster General, was requested this morning throughout an interview on Sky News how Mr Sunak may presumably relate to a single mom in Wigan “struggling to keep a roof over her head”.

Mr Glen replied: “I think Rishi Sunak needs to be judged on what decisions he has made as a government minister.

“I was sat with him in the Treasury during Covid where he within a matter of days set up the process for the furlough scheme, for bounce back loans, for additional money for our public services.

“I know Rishi Sunak very well, I interviewed him 10 years ago to be an MP. He had a successful career before he entered Parliament and he met and fell in love with somebody whose father had set up a very successful IT services firm.

“What he needs to be judged on as Prime Minister is what he delivers for the people of this country.”
