Boris Johnson changing ministerial code of conduct to no longer require ministerial resignation if code of conduct is broken by minister

Recommended Posts


New rules say ministers can apologise or temporarily lose pay for breaking code, which PM is accused of doing


Summary of changes:


  • References to "honesty," "integrity," "transparency," and "accountability" removed from foreword
  • Johnson himself now has to approve all investigations into himself and his ministers
  • Instead of resigning for breaching the code, ministers can now choose to temporarily have their pay reduced
