Former Welsh Secretary, Cheryl Gillan, has released a statement regarding today's cabinet reshuffle.
David and I have worked together for six years and he was a great
support as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State during my time as
Secretary of State and, prior to that, as a Shadow Minister in Opposition.
He is an excellent constituency MP, representing the interests of all
his constituents in Clwyd West with great vigour. I can think of no better
person to take on the mantle of Wales in the Cabinet and I wish him well.
– Cheryl Gillan, MP
I am confident he will carry out his new responsibilities and be a strong voice for Wales, challenging the decisions made in the Assembly andstanding up for the people of Wales in Westminster and elsewhere.
Clywd West MP, David Jones, has been confirmed as her replacement.
