Jeremy Hunt remains Chancellor in big cabinet reshuffle

Evesham Editorial 25th Oct, 2022   0

NEW Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has decided to keep Jeremy Hunt as chancellor, as he conducts a wide-ranging reshuffle of his cabinet ministers.

Mr Hunt, who was appointed to the job two weeks ago by former PM Liz Truss, reversed much of her tax-cutting mini-budget.

But nine cabinet ministers have left their posts, including Jacob Rees-Mogg as business secretary.

This includes key Truss allies such as ex-Levelling Up Secretary Simon Clarke.




Former chief whip Wendy Morton and ex-Work and Pensions Secretary Chloe Smith, other backers of Ms Truss’s leadership, are also out.

They join Brandon Lewis, Robert Buckland and Ranil Jayawardena in leaving the cabinet.
