Damian Hinds appointed education secretary

Grammar school-educated minister was previously at the Department for Work and Pensions
Damian Hinds has replaced Justine Greening as education secretary.

His appointment comes after his predecessor spent two-and-a-half hours inside 10 Downing Street, after which she resigned.

Reportedly, Ms Greening refused to be moved to the Department for Work and Pensions.

As well as being a former member of the Commons Education Select Committee, Mr Hinds once chaired the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Social Mobility – a key issue for both the prime minister and Ms Greening.
