Two new education ministers in May reshuffle

Anne Milton and Robert Goodwill have been appointed as new ministers at the Department for Education in the ongoing reshuffle.

Milton, MP for Guildford and a former health minister, will take the skills and apprenticeships brief previously held by Robert Halfon, who was sacked by Theresa May yesterday.

Goodwill, who represents Scarborough and Whitby and has previously been a transport minister and immigration minister, is understood to be in line to replace children’s minister Edward Timpson, who lost his Crewe and Nantwich seat to Labour last week.
