British Prime Minister bans ministers from appearing on TV every morning
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has banned ministers from appearing on television and radio every day.
Until today, the ministers appeared every day, especially in the morning programs. They will now be able to go out no more than three days a week and there will be a prior notice for this.
A source told The Mirror that the government has decided that ministers should come out to speak when the public really need to hear something from the government.
The measure was met with criticism from MPs, the public or journalists. They even considered it a lack of accountability and transparency.
The government's latest decision comes after a tumultuous month for the Prime Minister, with three of his ministers facing tough questions in public and even their appointment being called into question.
Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab will be investigated over allegations of harassment.
Before the allegations against Raab emerged, Cabinet Office Minister Gavin Williamson was forced to resign over an official complaint that he had allegedly threatened a former civil servant.
Sunak has also been criticized for rehiring Suella Braverman as Home Secretary, just six days after she was sacked in Liz Truss's government for sending emails from her personal account.
