Land declaration

Asked if the PM regretted not registering his land, the PMS said that there wasn’t, and isn’t, an interest to declare. He added that it was a public transaction, the PM paid the full market rate for the land, and he had sought assurances from the Head of Propriety and Ethics at the Cabinet Office and his Principal Private Secretary before doing so. Asked if the Government would publish minutes showing this advice, the PMS said that the Government didn’t publish advice to Ministers.

Asked if the issue represented a breach of the ministerial code where it said there shouldn’t be any suspicion of impropriety, the PMS said that this had been handled in the proper way in accordance with the ministerial code.
