Rules, guidance and application forms - Former Ministers

Under the Ministerial Code former Ministers must seek advice on appointments or employment that they wish to take up within two years of leaving office.

The current Business Appointment Rules for former Ministers came into effect in May 2010.


Former Ministers who wish to seek the Advisory Committee's advice are asked to complete an application form and return it to the Secretary. The accompanying guidance provides further information on the Committee's approach.
