Referendum Fallout - Local MP Andrew Selous is Sacked


Local MP Sacked from his Prison job.


Sacked former Cabinet minister Michael Gove's team at the Ministry of Justice has been dramatically reshaped with Prisons Minister Andrew Selous the latest to leave the department.

On his website Andrew Selous says,

"I have been asked to stand down as Minister for Prisons, Probation and Rehabilitation by Theresa May our new Prime Minister. It has been an enormous honour to serve in this role for the last two years and a privilege to champion the work of our inspirational prison officers, probation staff and wonderful voluntary sector partners. They are amazing people who do their work often unseen and unappreciated."

 "I have served continuously as a Parliamentary Private Secretary,Whip and Minister in both Opposition and in Government for the last 13 years and it has been a huge honour to serve my country in this way. I look forward to having the time to take up many issues which I care about deeply and to continue serving my constituents."


He tweeted his thanks to the civil service he has worked with.
