Breaking News: Business Secretary named in cabinet reshuffle
Greg Clark re-appointed

Theresa May has made some changes to her ministerial team, but has named Greg Clark as Business Secretary once again.

Clark has been in the role since being appointed Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in July 2016.

The re-shuffle also sees Philip Hammond remain Chancellor of the Exchequer, Amber Rudd as Home Secretary, and immigration minister Brandon Lewis appointed as Tory chairman, replacing Sir Patrick McLoughlin.
Boris Johnson remains Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affair and David Davis will remain in his post as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. Sajid Javid becomes Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, adding housing to his role of Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
Justice Secretary David Lidington has been moved to the Cabinet Office. Meanwhile, James Brokenshire resigned as Northern Ireland secretary for health reasons.
The changes to the cabinet, which are May’s third reshuffle since becoming PM in July 2016, were triggered by her sacking of Damian Green last month as first secretary of state.
