The Ministerial Code was updated and reissued in January 2018. As the Code already makes clear, Ministers are expected to behave in a way that upholds the highest standards of propriety, and the Code expressly should be read against the background of the overarching duty on Ministers to comply with the law, uphold collective responsibility and to protect the integrity of public life.
