The department holds no central record of such allegations.

The conduct of all civil servants, including special advisers, is taken very seriously

Special advisers act in accordance with the Special Adviser Code of Conduct, which includes clear guidance on appropriate conduct in public life.

The Code can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/special- advisers-code-of-conduct
