Sir Keir Starmer breached the MPs’ code of conduct by failing to register on time eight interests, including gifts from football teams and the sale of a plot of land.
An inquiry into the Labour leader was opened in June by the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner Kathryn Stone.
It related to claims about late declaration of earnings and gifts, benefits or hospitality from UK sources.
Speaking at the time, Sir Keir said he was ‘absolutely confident’ he had not broken the MPs’ code of conduct.
The commissioner has now found that leader of the Opposition failed to register eight interests – five more than the ones alleged in the original complaint.
However, she noted the ‘breaches were minor and/or inadvertent, and that there was no deliberate attempt to mislead’.
