Congratulations to Jenny Willott

Congratulations to Jenny Willott – my Liberal Democrat colleague from Cardif Central who was promoted on Sunday to be our Shadow Secretary of State for Department Work and Pensions.

About time Jenny joined our Shadow Cabinet – very talented and very experienced in the portfolio having been on the Select Committee equivalent for the last three years.

It came about because Danny Alexander who had the portfolio has also been doing what was meant to be a temporary post as Chief of Staff for Nick Clegg. However, too much to do both and given that they get on so well – Danny asked if he could have a replacement for the Work & Pensions job – couldn’t get better than Jenny.
