Principles of Public Life
The seven principles of public life apply to anyone who works as a public office-holder. This includes people who are elected or appointed to public office, nationally and locally, and all people appointed to work in local government. For further information on the seven principles and the work of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, visit the Committee’s website and blogsite.
