To ask the Prime Minister if he will make it his policy to lay proposed revisions of the Ministerial Code before Parliament for its approval. (270445)

The Government’s position remains as set out in “Government memorandum in response to the third report from the Public Administration Select Committee (Session 2000-2001) on the Ministerial Code”. This view was subsequently shared by the Joint Committee on the Draft Constitutional Renewal Bill in its report: “Draft Constitutional Renewal Bill Volume I: Report” (Session 2007-08). Copies of the memorandum and the report are available in the Library of the House.
