Three vaguely interesting bits of government power play this afternoon.
Osborne takes control of the Shareholder Executive – the body managing the taxpayer’s holdings in part-government owned businesses – from BIS.
While overall responsibility for the Digital Economy Unit goes to John Whittingdale at DCMS – again away from BIS.
Greg Clark at DCLG gets responsibility for Cities policy from Oliver Letwin.
BIS will no longer be quite the all-encompassing department it was, albeit these changes being rather minor.
