Justice Minister, Jonathan Djanogly, has relinquished his role in the crack-down on referral fees and ambulance chasing lawyers, The Daily Telegraph has reported.

Mr Djanogly’s position was compromised after an investigation by the newspaper revealed that his children held shares in a legal claims firm, and his responsibilities in this area have passed to Justice Secretary, Ken Clarke.

Unlike former Defence Secretary, Liam Fox, Mr Djanogly does not appear to have breach the ministerial code and no further investigations are anticipated.

Despite the interests of his children, Mr Djanogly last month railed against spurious personal injury claims, saying they only happen because the current system “allows too many people to profit from minor accidents and incidents”.
