Posted 30.04.18

Sajid Javid will move to the role of Home Secretary and James Brokenshire will take over as Secretary of State for Housing.

James Brokenshire is the MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup. He was the former Northern Ireland Secretary and is returning to Cabinet just under four months after he left the government for health reasons.

Terrie Alafat CBE, chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Housing said:

"Sajid Javid has made an important contribution as Secretary of State.

"During his time in the role, housing has become a top domestic priority for the government and we've seen an important shift in the narrative on housing - including a move to a more balanced view of the response we need to solve our housing crisis."
