David Davis nabs Butler from BPPA

Shadow home secretary David Davis has appointed Bell Pottinger Public Affairs consultant Peter Butler as an adviser.

Butler described the post as a ‘hybrid role advising on press and policy', working under Davis's chief of staff.

He takes up the position on 20 November, after just over two years at BPPA, ­providing media and crisis comms support for clients including Asda, Rio Tinto and HSBC.

Davis was the early front-runner in last year's Conservative leadership contest.
