Mark Garnier cleared of breaching ministerial code over sex toys request


International trade minister Mark Garnier will continue in post after a Cabinet Office investigation into allegations of inappropriate behaviour found that he did not break the ministerial code.

Theresa May said "a line should be drawn under the issue" after the probe found that Mr Garnier had not breached expected standards of behaviour since becoming a minister.

The Prime Minister ordered the inquiry following allegations Mr Garnier used derogatory language to his secretary and asked her to buy sex toys, before he became a minister.
