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.
