star this property answer text <p><strong>The government is committed to supporting families. To achieve this, in 2014 we introduced the Family Test, which aims to ensure that impacts on family relationships and functioning are recognised early on during the process of policy development and help inform the policy decisions made by Minsters. There is no requirement for departments to publish the results of assessments made under the Family Test.</strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Business Appointment Rules (para 8), attached at Annex B of the Ministerial Code, defines lobbying as:</p><p> </p><p><em>…communication with Government (Ministers, civil servants, including special advisers, and other relevant officials/public office holders) – wherever it takes place - with a view to influencing a Government decision, policy or contract award/grant in relation to their own interests or the interests of the organisation by which they are employed, or to whom they are contracted or with which they hold office. 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. This includes following the correct process for seeking advice from the independent Advisory Committee on Business Appointments.</p><p>Individuals who are serving Members of Parliament should also be mindful that any outside activity must comply with the Commons Code of Conduct.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Advisory Committee on Business Appointments (ACOBA) is independent from Government and its role is to provide advice on applications submitted under the Government's Business Appointment Rules (the Rules) from the most senior Civil Servants and former Ministers. In doing so it considers the risks posed by an application and advises on the conditions that should apply. Relevant correspondence is published on ACOBA’s website.</p><p> </p><p>ACOBA is only one part of the Business Appointments system. Other applications are considered by the responsible department; and departmental boards are responsible for the oversight of the Rules within each department, via Audit and Risk Committees.</p><p> </p> more like this
