Cummings refused over consultanc­y work


Dominic Cummings has been refused permission to take on consultanc­y work after failing to follow the rules when launching his blog.

The former Downing Street adviser was accused in July of breaking rules on senior officials taking paid work after leaving government.

The Advisory Committee on Business Appointmen­ts watchdog has refused to provide advice on Mr Cummings’s latest applicatio­n, saying he had not yet replied to its earlier admonishme­nt for setting up on the Substack website his blog, in which subscriber­s pay £10 a month to read details about his time working with the Prime Minister.
