Treasury's Sajid Javid replaces Maria Miller as culture secretary

Treasury financial secretary Sajid Javid is to replace Maria Miller as culture secretary following her resignation over an expenses scandal.

Conservative MP Nicky Morgan, who was economic secretary to the Treasury, will replace Javid (pictured) as financial secretary.  

Prime minster David Cameron announced the changes on Twitter.

He wrote: ‘Sajid Javid MP is the new secretary of state for culture, media, sport and equalities, and Nicky Morgan MP is the new financial secretary to the Treasury. She'll also be minister for women and will attend Cabinet in that role.’

Miller resigned this morning claiming the news about her expenses had become a distraction for the government.
