Christopher Pincher MP has been appointed Housing Minister in the cabinet reshuffle replacing Esther McVey. Mr Pincher is the MP for Tamworth and was previously the Minister of State for Europe and the Americas. He becomes the tenth Housing Minster in a decade.
Delighted to be appointed as the @mhclg Minister of State for Housing – though sad to be leaving a great team at @foreignoffice.
This Government will deliver on our commitment to build the housing that people need. Looking forward to getting stuck in alongside @RobertJenrick.
