Today, I was appointed as Minister of State for Crime Prevention at the Home Office. You can read more about the changes here.
I am of course sad to leave the Department of International Development – but I also look forward to returning to the Home Office, with a portfolio that covers tackling violence against women and girls and preventing FGM here in the UK.
In my previous role as a junior minister at the Home Office, I led efforts to introduce equal marriage, end the fingerprinting of children and ban wheel clamping on private land.
I have already emailed my constituents to let them know about the change. I’ll continue to update them on the work I’m doing in Government in this new role.
