Raab said he had always adhered to the ministerial code and "behaved professionally" as fresh bullying claims emerged. Confirming the scope had been expanded a No 10 spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that the Prime Minister has now asked the investigator to add a further formal complaint relating to conduct at the Department for Exiting the European Union and to establish the facts in line with the existing terms of reference." The third formal complaint was received by the Cabinet Office on November 23, the spokeswoman said.

She said the Prime Minister retains confidence in his deputy.Raab told the BBC: "I've behaved professionally at all times and I'm the one that when the complaint came in a matter of days ago, the first that has come against me since I've been a minister since 2015, called for an independent inquiry and I look forward to dealing with it fully and transparently rather than dealing with anonymous comments in the media."I always adhere to the ministerial code, including my use of my iPhone.
