Michael Gove has said he is "very excited" about his new role as Chief Whip, although he admitted he felt a "sense of sadness" about leaving the Department for Education.
Speaking to ITV News Political Editor Tom Bradby, Mr Gove said he had talked to David Cameron last week about the move and he was "delighted to take up that task".
He also indicated that he had been involved in other ministerial reshuffle moves, saying he had "played a role over the course of the last week with the Prime Minister and with the Chancellor" in making sure "the right people" were in place for the Conservatives.
