Junior ministerial appointments at De-CLoG


Over the weekend the government announced a tranche of junior ministerial appointments after last week’s cabinet appointments.

These include:

• Gavin Barwell MP, Minister of State for Housing, Planning and Minister for London at the Department for Communities and Local Government.

• Andrew Percy MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government.

• Marcus Jones MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government.

• Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Wales Office.

I seem to have missed out Matt Hancock M.P., as he is on one list I have seen, but not on others.

De-CLoG has not yet posted up on its website the way in which jobs within the department will be parcelled out, but no doubt this will be forthcoming shortly.

Brandon Lewis, who was Housing and Planning Minister under both Eric Pickles and Greg Clark has moved to the Home Office.

UPDATE: Gavin Barwell has been named as the junior minister responsible for planning and housing.
