Once again the sector has to share a minister

In the recent government reshuffle, Baroness Barran has moved to the Department for Education. Nigel Huddleston MP is the replacement but we no longer have a dedicated minister as Nigel also has responsibility for Sport, the Commonwealth Games, Tourism, Heritage and Civil Society & Youth (that’s the order of the listings on the gov.uk website)

I do hope that the government understands the value of Civil Society, and that the now shared minister can devote sufficient time to representing our views.
