EXETER, England (Reuters) - British prime ministerial candidate Boris Johnson said on Friday he has not offered anybody a job in any future government he might lead.

Former foreign minister Johnson is front-runner in the competition with current foreign minister Jeremy Hunt to be next leader of the Conservative Party and prime minister.

“I want to stress - nobody has been offered a job,” Johnson said at a hustings event in Exeter, southwest England, after a newspaper reported that he had offered the post of finance minister to Sajid Javid, the current interior minister.
