Rachel Reeves – 2021 Comments on the Independent Adviser for Ministerial Interests

The comments made by Rachel Reeves, the Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, on 28 April 2021.

In our country, the police don’t require the permission of a thief to investigate a burglary.

The Prime Minister can’t be judge and jury on his Ministers’ – or indeed his own – behaviour.

The Prime Minister shouldn’t be able to block investigations into his Ministers or himself when breaking the Ministerial Code.
