David Mundell has been sacked from the Cabinet by Boris Johnson, the new Prime Minister. Mundell had served as the Secretary of State for Scotland since 2015.
Mundell said on Twitter:
“Disappointed but not surprised to be leaving the Scotland Office after 9 years. Will, of course, support the new Government, but as I said to PM this afternoon I will also hold him to account on his commitments to the Union. Hope there’s still room on the backbenches! 🏴🇬🇧”
