    Ms Gray is a former director general of propriety and ethics at The Cabinet Office and has been described as the most powerful civil servant you have never heard of.

    In her former job as director-general of propriety and ethics in the Cabinet Office she had enormous power and long experience in Westminster scandals, and developed a fearsome reputation among ministers and officials.

    She dealt with complaints against ministers on behalf of the Cabinet Secretary and Prime Minister.

    Her inquiry into the so-called Plebgate affair led to the resignation of minister Andrew Mitchell.

    Her investigation into Damian Green led to his forced resignation after she discovered he had lied about pornography found on his Commons computer.

    She returned to London to head up work on the Union earlier this year.
