UPDATE: It turns out that Mark Francois’ appointment to Housing Mininster was all just a bit of mix-up. Francois’ name was mistakenly put up on the DCLG website… Brandon Lewis has, in fact, kept his portfolio…
Lewis, MP for Great Yarmouth, was originally appointed Housing Minister on 15th July 2014.
Francois gets a new role as Cities Minister, while Greg Clark has replaced Eric Pickles as secretary of state for Communities and Local Government.
Original Story: Mark Francois has been named as the new housing and planning minister.
