Robert Jenrick has been appointed as the Treasury minister for charity taxation as part of Prime Minister Theresa May’s cabinet re-shuffle.
Jenrick, who is currently the Conservative MP for Newark, has been appointed as Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury and will oversee the charities, voluntary sector and Gift Aid briefs, as well as supporting tax legislation in parliament.
He replaces Andrew Jones MP, who was appointed as a Conservative Party vice-chair after a six month stint in charity taxation.
Prior to this role, Jenrick was the parliamentary private secretary to Home Secretary Amber Rudd – this will be his first ministerial post.
Delighted to be joining @hmtreasury - succeeding an outstanding Minister in Andrew Jones. Looking forward to the challenge ahead, making the case for free markets, driving our economy forward and ensuring it works for all.— Robert Jenrick MP (@RobertJenrick) January 9, 2018
