James Brokenshire replaces Sajid Javid as secretary of state for housing
Former Northern Ireland secretary James Brokenshire has been appointed secretary of state for housing, communities and local government.


Brokenshire replaces Savid Javid has taken on the role of home secretary, after Amber Rudd’s resignation over illegal immigrant targets.

Housing became a cabinet position at the start of the year when it was added to Javid’s remit, alongside communities and local government.

Brokenshire was secretary of state for Northern Ireland from July 2016 to January 2018 and was elected MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup in 2010.

Dominic Raab remains as housing minister, after taking the position from Alok Sharma in January amid a wider reshuffle.

Brokenshire today wrote on twitter said: “Honoured to have been asked by the Prime Minister to serve as Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing Communities & Local Government.

“Looking forward to taking the Government’s agenda forward especially on building the homes our country needs. @mhclg
