Blackett had been considering his position after being disappointed with the RFU council's response to his report into the recruitment process which saw John Steele hired as chief executive - in particular the threat of legal action should the findings be published.
Blackett today confirmed he would stay in his position, but made it clear he was unimpressed with the manner in which things had been handled.
In a statement released by the RFU, he said: "I have spent the last week considering my future as honorary disciplinary officer of the RFU. I have decided not to resign and, given the amount of media interest, I thought it important that I explain why."
