Sajid Javid keeps local government role

Sajid Javid keeps local government role

Sajid Javid has been re-appointed as minister for communities and local government by the prime minister.

In her post-election cabinet reshuffle, Theresa May also appointed former housing minister Gavin Barwell as her new chief of staff.

The former Croydon Central MP lost his central Croydon seat in the General Election on Thursday – and his place as a Department of Communities and Local Government minister.

The reshuffle also saw Michael Gove return from the backbenchers after being appointed secretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs.

However, many of the roles remain unchanged after Mrs May lost her government majority.

Jeremy Hunt stays on as health minister, Karen Bradley is still culture secretary, Justine Greening remains as education secretary and Chris Grayling is transport minister.
