Sajid Javid appointed Culture Secretary

Bromsgrove MP and financial secretary to the Treasury Sajid Javid has replaced Maris Miller as Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.

Maria has left the position in a row over expenses claims after less than two years.

During her time she was responsible for making decisions on the takeover of GMG Radio by Global Radio, after her predecessor Jeremy Hunt instructed Ofcom and the Office of Fair Trading to carry out acquisition tests.

Maria said the merger did not warrant investigation on grounds of plurality based on Ofcom’s recommendation, but did refer it to the Competition Commission.
