David Cameron has been told that he cannot directly approach cabinet ministers as a professional lobbyist. The ban issued by the independent appointments watchdog will last until July 2018, that is, two years following his resignation.
That is a total ban of four months, from lobbying directly cabinet ministers.
The former British prime minister who called the referendum for leaving the EU – and resigned when the UK voted to leave the EU – has assumed various lobbying role, including a UK-China investment fund, the biotechnology firm illumina, and the First Data Corporation.
Since his resignation Mr. Cameron has abstained from taking any position on the current political agenda, including Brexit negotiations, focusing instead on paid lectures abroad and commercial lobbying activity.
