The arrival of Boris Johnson at 10 Downing Street has resulted in the appointment of another culture secretary, Nicky Morgan.
The MP for Loughborough, who voted remain in the European Referendum, takes the place of Jeremy Wright after just one year in the job.
Ms Morgan said it would be an “enormous privilege to take on this fabulous role”.
An enormous privilege to take on this fabulous role – although I’m sad to move on from @CommonsTreasury which I have absolutely loved chairing. Thank you to my fellow Select Committee members & committee staff https://t.co/TjdXf0TbYz

Morgan was Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities from for two years during the Cameron administration before being removed by Theresa May.
On Wednesday, the new prime minister repeated his party leadership promise of full fibre broadband in every household by 2025, and he will have been buoyed by today’s news of a gigabit broadband rollout by Virgin Media.
