Nicky Morgan appointed new DCMS Secretary of State

Nicky Morgan, Chair of House of Commons Treasury Committee, has been appointed Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, replacing Jeremy Wright.

The Loughborough MP previously served as Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities (2014 – 16); Financial Secretary to the Treasury (2014); Minister for Women (2014); Economic Secretary to the Treasury (2013 – 14); an Assistant Government Whip (2012 – 13); and the Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Rt Hon. David Willetts MP, Cabinet Minister for Universities and Science (2010 – 12).

Nicky was re-elected as the Member of Parliament for Loughborough in the 2015 and 2017 General Elections and, in July 2017, she was elected by MPs on all sides of the House of Commons as Chair of the Treasury Select Committee.

On moving to the new role, the MP said: “An enormous privilege to take on this fabulous role – although I’m sad to move on from Commons Treasury which I have absolutely loved chairing. Thank you to my fellow Select Committee members & committee staff.”

    The Minister for Culture said, in a speech in 2014:

    “If you wanted to do something, or even if you didn’t know what you wanted to do, then the arts and humanities were what you chose because they were useful for all kinds of jobs.

    “Of course, we know now that couldn’t be further from the truth – that the subjects that keep young people’s options open and unlock the door to all sorts of careers are the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths).”
