Following on from David Cameron’s Cabinet reshuffle last week (15 July), the Ministry of Justice has seen the appointment of Mike Penning MP to the position of Minister of State for the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice (Police Minister).

Previously the Minister of State for Disabled People, Mr Penning will have a range of responsibilities including ‘Criminal Justice system reform’ (reporting jointly to the Justice Secretary and Home Secretary), ‘Criminal law and procedure’ and ‘Sentencing policy’. 

Also promoted during the reshuffle was Andrew Selous, who was appointed to the role of Parliamentary-Under-Secretary of State for Justice, with special responsibility for HM Prison and Probation Service. He will be responsible for ‘Prisons’, ‘Probation’, and ‘Youth Justice’ as well as ‘Transforming Rehabilitation’.
