Work and Pensions Minister Amber Rudd remains in post

Wednesday 24 July heralded a new era for British politics with Boris Johnson taking the reigns as Britain’s latest Prime Minister. His first job, to appoint his Cabinet colleagues saw the biggest ministerial shake up in living history.

Whilst Mr Johnson’s appointments will see a number of Government Departments with a new ministerial lead, The Department of Work and Pensions is one of the few where the status quo remains, with Amber Rudd remaining as Minister for Work and Pensions.

In a time of uncertainty, with Brexit still unresolved and Mr Johnson announcing his plans for sweeping changes, the fact that pensions appear to remain stable is welcome news.
