Matt Hancock has been reappointed as Minister of State for Digital & Culture by Prime Minister Theresa May, following last week’s General Election.
Hancock’s reappointment comes a day after it was confirmed that Karen Bradley would resume her duties as Culture Secretary.
Hancock announced his reappointment on Twitter, writing: “Delighted to be reappointed Minister of State for Digital & Culture by the PM. Big agenda, great people & lots to do. Can't wait to crack on.”
Ahead of the General Election, Hancock spoke to Music Week about why he believes the Conservatives are the best party to take the music industry forward.
