Former chancellor George Osborne has been recognised as part of David Cameron’s resignation honours list.

The BBC reports Osborne, who was chancellor between 2010 and July 2016, has been admitted to the Order of the Companions of Honour.

This is awarded for service of “conspicuous national importance” and only held by 65 peple.

Osborne is among 46 of Cameron’s former colleagues and allies who have been rewarded in Cameron’s honours list.

These include Osborne’s special adviser Thea Rogers, who has been made an OBE.

Other recipients of honours include Tory party chairman and former transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin, former Cabinet minister Oliver Letwin, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Cameron’s former communications director Craig Oliver.

A row has broken out after details of the list were leaked to the Sunday Times last weekend.
