New ministerial team at DCMS

A number of new appointments have been made at DCMS. Karen Bradley takes over from John Whittingdale as Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. Matt Hancock becomes Minister for Culture and Digital. Rob Wilson who joins DCMS as Minister for Civil Society (in a move of this function from Cabinet Office) takes on responsibility for libraries policy. Tracey Crouch remains Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Sport, Tourism and Heritage. The inclusion of responsibility for civil society within DCMS means that the department now has responsibility for charities, social investment, volunteering and the BIG Lottery Fund.
