New UK arts minister

January 9 2018

Here in the UK, the Prime Minister has been re-shuffling the Cabinet, or at least attempting to; the main person she wanted to move, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, refused to budge. Further down the ministerial ladder, the Arts Minister, John Glen, has been moved to the Treasury. Which was not entirely convenient for me, as I was due to meet him tomorrow, to discuss museum image fees. 

The new Arts Minister is now Michael Ellis. As the former minister Ed Vaizey says (on Twitter):

Congratulations Michael. Great guy. Though third arts Minister in less than 18 months not so good...

There is also a new Secretary of State for Culture, Matt Hancock.
