This does not prohibit contacts, including at a social or party political level which is unrelated to such lobbying.</em></p><p> </p><p>Former Ministers remain personally responsible for deciding how to act and conduct themselves in the light of the Ministerial Code and for justifying their actions and conduct to Parliament and the public.
