James Brokenshire is to leave the Cabinet following the appointment of Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister. Brokenshire had served as the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government since 2018.
Brokenshire posted on Twitter:
“After 13 years service on the front bench including 9 in Government will be heading to the backbenches. Has been a huge privilege to serve, but looking forward to being released from collective responsibility and campaigning on issues that matter to me and my constituents.”
