All those who hold public office are expected to maintain high standards of behaviour and uphold the highest standards of propriety. The Government is confident that the relevant Codes of Conduct for Ministers, Special Advisers and Civil Servants clearly set out the standards of behaviour expected of them in their roles.

Furthermore, all public office holders are expected to observe the Seven Principles of Public Life which are included within these codes.
