To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, pursuant to the Answer of 23 October 2018 to Question 182765 on Harvey Weinstein, for what reasons the Forfeiture Committee is unlikely to take action to remove the honorary CBE awarded to Harvey Weinstein until the end of legal proceedings; and if he will make a statement.

The Government does not make any comment or statement in relation to the details of individual cases. The Forfeiture Committee is not an investigatory body: it does not decide whether or not someone is guilty or innocent of a particular act. The Forfeiture Committee generally considers it inappropriate to pre-judge the outcome of legal proceedings.
