Liz Truss has rewarded key allies with top jobs in a major reshuffle hours after taking over from Boris Johnson as prime minister. Kwasi Kwarteng is in as chancellor, James Cleverly is foreign secretary and Suella Braverman takes over from Priti Patel as home secretary. One of Ms Truss’s closest friends, Therese Coffey, is the new health secretary and deputy prime minister. Big names losing their place in the cabinet include Dominic Raab. Former Transport Secretary Grant Shapps and former Health Secretary Steve Barclay – who like Mr Raab supported Ms Truss’s defeated rival Rishi Sunak in the Tory leadership contest – are also returning to the backbenches.
