Cabinet reshuffle: Mark Prisk loses housing minister role

  • Comment

Mark Prisk is to leave his job as housing minister

Prisk who was responsible for policies such as the recently launched Help to Buy scheme, tweeted: ‘Been asked to step aside from housing for a younger generation. Disappointing but its been a great eleven years on the frontbench.’

The MP for Hertford and Stortford took over as housing minister from Grant Shapps back in 2012, after he was promoted to the position of Conservative party chairman.

Prisk is the second minister at the Department for Communities and Local Government to change their jobs in the cabinet reshuffle. It was announced this morning that communities minister Don Foster would be leaving his role to become the Liberal Democrats chief whip.
