Greg Clark is to leave the Cabinet following the appointment of Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister. Clark had served as the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy since 2016.
Clark posted across three Tweets on Twitter:
I warmly congratulate Boris Johnson on becoming Prime Minister. He is right to appoint a new team for a new premiership and I wish him and them well for the vital work ahead.
It has been an honour to serve the country as Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy for the last 3 years; and as Communities Secretary, Universities & Science Minister, Cities Minister, Financial Secretary to the Treasury & Planning Minister.
I am grateful for the support of outstanding civil servants, special advisors and ministerial colleagues during that time. I look forward to participating fully in the work of Parliament and continuing to serve the people of Tunbridge Wells.
