The Energy department was moved out of the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy in a move that authorities claim would enable Britain to “seize the opportunities of net zero.”
The Prime Minister reorganised the Cabinet this morning in an effort to boost the Conservative Party’s poll numbers.
He cited the necessity to oust Nadhim Zahawi as party leader as justification for a more extensive reorganisation of his government. After an independent inquiry determined that Zahawi had violated the ministerial code by neglecting to disclose an HMRC investigation into his tax matters, he was fired from his job.
In addition to the reorganisation of several government ministries, the reforms include the appointment of Greg Hands as party chairman. The Department for International Trade and the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy have been combined by Sunak, who has also established a new department for research and technology.
Culture and Sport are now housed in their own distinct department.
The Energy Department has also been transferred from the Business Department to the new Energy Security and Net Zero Department. The new energy grouping will be supervised by Grant Shapps.
The new department, according to government officials, “recognises the significant impact rising prices have had on households across the country as a result of Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine, and the need to secure more energy from domestic nuclear and renewable sources as we seize the opportunities of net zero.”
The newly created position of Secretary of State for Science, Innovation, and Technology will be filled by Michelle Donelan; the Secretary of State for Business and Trade will be Kemi Badenoch; and the Secretary of State for Culture, Media, and Sport will be Lucy Frazer KC.
After less than a year, Britain’s Cabinet has seen five changes.
Additionally, it occurs only 105 days after Sunak named his first set of ministers after succeeding Liz Truss as prime minister.
The Prime Minister is attempting to make an effort to raise his party’s popularity at a time when polls for the Tories are at record lows and they are well behind the opposition Labour Party.
With a general election less than a year away, Labour presently leads the Government by 24 points.
Labour received 46% of the national vote, according to People Polling for GB News, which was published on February 2. The Conservative Party received 22%.
