I am very sorry to see talented ministers leave office as they have contributed so much.
I am fully aware that the Prime Minister and the Government - of which I am part - need to work hard to earn back the confidence of the British public. We will do this by focussing on the priorities of the people who elected us, including tackling the cost of living, levelling up opportunities, and working internationally to restore global stability following the shocks of the pandemic and invasion of Ukraine.
I have a responsibility to serve my constituents to the best of my abilities, while also in my ministerial role helping the sectors I oversee, such as tourism and sport as they recover from the pandemic. I am focussed on delivering major international sporting events including the Women's EUROs which start today, and the Commonwealth Games which start in just 22 days time.
