Techie1 + 2,024 Posted June 12, 2017 Share Posted June 12, 2017 Damian Green given prominent Cabinet post. Brandon Lewis has won promotion The Policing and Fire Minister post is now vacant, following the promotion of Brandon Lewis to a more senior role. The Great Yarmouth MP who fared well in the General Election unlike many of his Conservative Party colleagues – increasing his majority – is now Immigration Minister in the Home Office. During the election campaign he appeared at the Police Federation Conference in Birmingham – where delegates groaned at his claims that crime is down and that police officer numbers are not the Home Office’s responsibility. In an article for The Times today, he writes: "I have worked closely with Mrs May; her steely determination in turbulent times is one of her great strengths and that’s what we need right now. "I believe she needs to stay on as our prime minister." One of his predecessors in the role, Damian Green, has been promoted to First Secretary of State, effectively making him Theresa May’s deputy. Amber Rudd remains Home Secretary, while David Lidington has taken over from Liz Truss as Justice Secretary. It is not yet known when a new Policing Minister will be chosen.
