New rules for ministerial weblogs

The cabinet is planning to tighten up the content of ministers’ online diaries or weblogs to stop them from being used for party political purposes or image building.

In the future, weblogs will only be allowed to focus on matters which relate to the minister’s own work and must also follow the cabinet line.
