Two Tory election candidates – Laura Saunders and Craig Williams – have confirmed they were being looked into by the Gambling Commission. Asked about the cases at special election edition of BBC’s Question Time, Mr Sunak said he was “incredibly angry, incredibly angry, to learn of these allegations”.

Speaking to the audience he said: “It’s a really serious matter – it’s right that they’re being investigated properly by the relevant law enforcement authorities. The integrity of that process should be respected. But what I can tell you is if anyone is found to have broken the rules, not only should they face the full consequences of the law, I will make sure that they are booted out of the Conservative Party
