Cabinet Office dismisses Labour conflict allegations against Djanogly


18th October 2011

The Cabinet Secretary, Sir Gus O'Donnell has cleared Justice Minister, Jonathan Djanogly of wrongdoing, following allegations of a conflict of interest by Shadow Justice Minister, Andy Slaughter. Responding, a Ministry of Justice spokesperson said:

‘The Cabinet Secretary has concluded that Jonathan Djanogly took the appropriate steps to prevent any conflict between his financial interests and his Ministerial duties. There is no evidence that he acted in any way other than in the public interest.

‘Mr Djanogly retains Ministerial responsibility for civil justice policy. He has requested that the Claims Management Regulation Unit be overseen by a different Justice Minister, to avoid any possible distraction from this important issue. The Ministry of Justice has agreed to this change.’

Mr Djanogly said:

'I am pleased that this matter has now been concluded. I have at all times maintained that I have made all relevant declarations. These baseless allegations were always part of a Labour and Trade Union motivated campaign against government proposals , which I am currently seeing through the House, to counter the no win no fee compensation culture in our country.'
