DfT confirms ministerial areas of responsibility

  • 20 September 2012
  • By Chris Druce

The Department for Transport has finally confirmed its ministerial team’s areas of responsibility, following the Cabinet reshuffle at the start of the month.

The reshuffle on 4 September saw Patrick McLoughlin, a former whip for the Conservatives, replace Justine Greening in the department’s top role as transport secretary.

The responsibilities of Stephen Hammond, the Conservative MP for Wimbledon who replaced Mike Penning,  include the Highways Agency, road safety, better regulation and freight and logistics – including the lorry road user charge.

Simon Burns, Conservative MP for Chelmsford, replaced Theresa Villiers. His responsibilities include rail strategy, international and Europe and aviation.

Norman Baker, who was at the DfT before the reshuffle, will look after public transport including taxis, traffic management and SMEs and growth.

McLoughlin recently committed himself to introducing a lorry road user charge no later than 2015.
