One Dutch visitor said the story of Hunt’s undisclosed apartments sounded familiar. “We had this issue in the Netherlands,” he said. “A minister had a house he forgot to tell anybody about. It was just a gift!”
“It is out of order,” added another passerby when asked about Hunt’s oversight. “He should declare everything. He isn’t exactly short of a few bob. He’s got £15m and he has not even declared a couple of flats. It’s ridiculous.”
