Simon Clarke Resigns as Minister of State for Local Government

Following Clarke’s resignation, the government has carried out a mini-reshuffle of its lower-ranking ministers:

  • Luke Hall MP replaces Simon Clarke
  • Kelly Tolhurst moved to Minister at Local Government from Transport
  • Robert Courts appointed Minister at Transport

Got that?

UPDATE: Guido learns the reason is truly personal – not him bowing out ahead of a scandal. Simon is well-liked among the Tory benches and many expect to see him back in government next year.
