Answered by: Lord Young of Cookham
Answered on: 01 November 2018

The Government does not comment on individual honours nominations. Due to the confidential nature of the honours system, discretion regarding individual cases is considered important to safeguard the confidentiality and integrity of the honours system.

Nominations are considered by one of ten independent Honours Committees before recommendations are made to Her Majesty The Queen.
