Sunak reshuffle: Shapps named energy secretary in department shake-up

No Comments

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has appointed Grant Shapps as the new energy and net zero secretary in a shake-up of government departments.

The former department which covered business and energy has been broken up as part of the reorganisation.

Greg Hands has replaced Nadhim Zahawi after the former Tory party chairman was sacked over his tax affairs.

A promotion also comes for Lucy Frazer who will head a streamlined department of culture, media, and sport.

Mr Sunak’s top team of ministers meet on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the changes.

Opposition parties say reorganising government departments will cost taxpayers millions of pounds and suggest Mr Sunak’s reshuffle is a sign of weakness.

But the government says the changes will help departments focus on the prime minister’s priorities.
