  • 16:46 Story (118 links): Shadow cabinet in major reshuffle

    PoliticsHome Shadow cabinet in major reshuffle Story View links

    Ed Miliband has hailed his first shadow cabinet reshuffle as a "changing of the guard" that shows Labour is "moving on". Mr Miliband rewarded Chuka Umunna, Stephen Twigg and Rachel Reeves with important roles as he revamped his front bench team.

    Mr Umunna takes over from John Denham at Shadow Business, while former Bank of England economist Ms Reeves will replace Angela Eagle as Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury. Mr Twigg, who famously ousted Michael Portillo in 1997, becomes Shadow Education Secretary, taking over from Andy Burnham, who moves to the Health brief, where John Healey is stepping down. The reshuffle will continue at junior levels next week.

    Deputy Leader Harriet Harman swaps roles with Ivan Lewis who moves from Culture to International Development. Tom Watson is rewarded for his combative approach to the phone hacking scandal with a new role as Labour's Deputy Chairman.

    Mr Miliband emphasised the number of new faces in his team, saying: “My decision to appoint half-a-dozen members of the 2010 intake shows the talent that Labour has and the way in which this new generation can join us in taking Labour’s agenda forward."

    Both Mr Healey and Mr Denham have announced their resignations and say they are leaving of their own accord. Mr Denham will become Mr Miliband's Parliamentary Private Secretary and will stand down as an MP at the next General Election.

    The Conservatives attacked Mr Miliband for appointing "known Brown supporters" to his team, with party chair Baroness Warsi saying: “By promoting Gordon Brown’s cronies, the very people who got us into this mess in the first place, it’s clear that Ed Miliband is a weak leader who has learnt nothing."

The average council tax rise in England this year will be 1.8%, the lowest ever recorded. John Denham, the local government secretary, claimed the low increase was made possible by government investment.


The number of local council officers paid more than £100,000 a year rose by 14% last year, according to a survey published by the Taxpayers' Alliance.


Ex-Communities secretary John Denham and his six ministers spent nearly £2,700 on official ministerial photographs, The Sun reports. Current communities secretary Eric Pickles and his team have spent £600.


A £50m fund designed to ease the impact of immigration on housing, schools and hospitals has been scrapped by the government without any publicity, according to the Guardian. Shadow communities secretary John Denham said it was "high risk" to cut the fund which "could prevent the stresses of migration boiling over into real community tension".


John Denham has said Labour would demand the resignation of Nick Clegg before doing a deal with the Liberal Democrats in any future hung parliament.
