Matt Hancock has been reappointed as culture minister, following the general election.
It follows the confirmation that Karen Bradley will remain in her post of culture secretary.
Both Hancock and Bradley kept their positions amid a cabinet reshuffle by Theresa May, as she attempts to form a minority government.
On Twitter, Hancock said he was “delighted” to be reappointed culture minister, a post he has held since July 2016.
“Big agenda, great people and lots to do,” he said.

Prior to the election, Hancock said the Conservatives strongly supported the arts and wanted to “see the arts flourish and see that success spread across the country”.
He also pledged to work with local authorities to ensure that they are incentivised to support the arts, despite the threats faced by regional arts venues to their funding.
