Sajid Javid is the new health secretary, in a dramatic return to the cabinet for the former Chancellor who quit in a clash with Dominic Cummings.
ジェレミーハント そして マイケル・ゴーブ were tipped to replace Mr Hancock, but the prime minister has instead turned to Mr Javid after a healing of relations between the pair, following Mr Cummings’ departure last year.
The appointment avoids the need for a wider reshuffle, by bringing in somebody currently on the Tory backbenches.
ジャビド氏 resigned in February 2020, in protest at Mr Cummings demand for him to sack his advisers to end a briefing war in Downing Street – making him the shortest-serving chancellor for more than 50 年.
Tensions had been rising between Mr Johnson and Mr Javid over spending plans and the power of the two offices, reaching a tipping point with a demand for him to accept advisers picked by No 10.
