Boris Johnson breached ministerial code with Telegraph column return

Boris Johnson broke the ministerial code when he failed to notify parliamentary authorities that he was returning to his job at The Daily Telegraph.

Mr Johnson went back to his role as a newspaper columnist after quitting Theresa May's cabinet earlier this month, a job he had held before the appointment to foreign secretary.

But Mr Johnson did not tell the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments (Acoba) that he intended to write for The Telegraph again.

Under the ministerial code, cabinet ministers should seek advice from Acoba before taking a new role after they leave cabinet.

They are required to wait three months before taking an outside role and usually expected to observe a two-year ban on lobbying government on behalf of their new employer or clients.
