Rishi Sunak replaces Nadhim Zahawi in cabinet reshuffle

Rishi Sunak has announced a mini-reshuffle as he replaces his sacked Tory chairman Nadhim Zahawi and tries to boost his party’s disastrous poll ratings.

The prime minister’s loyal ally Greg Hands has been named as the successor for Mr Zahawi, sacked for breaching the ministerial code over his tax affairs.

The PM has broken up the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) into separate ministries – creating a new energy department and merging trade into business.
