Britain's nominee for the European Commission is to sell his shares in a public relations and lobbying firm to avoid any suggestion of a conflict of interest.
Lord Hill holds shares in Huntsworth plc, which bought the company he founded, Quiller Consulting, in 2006.
Downing Street does not seem to believe the shareholding does create a conflict of interest, pointing out that Lord Hill has been a minister for four years and sits in the Cabinet.
That raises the question: 'Why are shares in a lobbying firm OK for a British Cabinet Minister, but don't look good for a potential EU Commissioner?"
