Helen Whately has been appointed as the government’s new arts minister, replacing Rebecca Pow.
Pow held the role for just four months, but has now left the job for a position in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Whately, the MP for Faversham and Mid Kent, will take over her role as minister for arts, heritage and tourism in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, led by culture secretary Nicky Morgan.
Whately said she was delighted to be joining the department, adding: “Already lost count of the number of people who’ve told me I have the best job in government.”
She campaigned to remain in the European Union before the 2016 referendum.
