Welcome to another week.

Following on from our post on Feb. 18, which detailed Downing Street’s initial announcement on the reshuffling of ministers in government departments, we can now share a fuller list.

As it seems to be taking the government longer than usual to confirm all of the positions, the list below is still only partially complete, and for the sake of this post features only ministerial posts which engage in child welfare.
