Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Business Interests

Question for Cabinet Office

UIN 185957, tabled on 22 April 2021

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, whether ACOBA has (a) considered the appointment of and (b) provided advice to any (i) former ministers, (ii) civil servants and (iii) special advisors from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport on taking up a position at Camelot UK Lotteries Limited; and if he will make a statement.

ACOBA is an independent advisory Committee and publishes its advice online. I therefore refer the hon. Member to the relevant publications on GOV.UK.

The application of the Business Appointment Rules for civil servants and special advisers below Director General or equivalent is a matter for their employing department. Departments publish summary information in respect of individuals at SCS2 and SCS1 level, including special advisers of equivalent standing.
