New Roles for Kemi

Our MP, Kemi Badenoch, has been appointed as the new Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury and Minister for Equalities by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the re-shuffle which was announced yesterday evening (Thursday).

Kemi, who is currently on maternity leave, said, when asked about her new role, "It is a privilege to be asked to serve in the Prime Minister's government at such a crucial time for our country. My Treasury role encompasses a wide range of responsibilities for the UK's growth and productivity including, but not limited to, financial policy on regional devolution, transport taxation and energy infrastructure and I am looking forward to taking on these positions."
