Prime Minister appoints former Chancellor Sajid Javid as new Health Secretary | Politics News

Former Chancellor Sajid Javid has been appointed health secretary following the resignation of Matt Hancock, Downing Street has announced.

The Bromsgrove MP previously served as Home Secretary from 2018 to 2019 – then Chancellor until February last year, when he was replaced by Rishi Sunak.

He resigned after refusing to fire his aides following an argument with the prime minister.

At the time, Mr Javid said he had “no other choice” than to resign – because Boris Johnson has attached to his maintenance of conditions that “no self-respecting minister would accept”.

Later, Mr. Javid said to the Commons: “It has always been the case that advisers advise, ministers decide and ministers decide on their advisers.

“I didn’t see why the Treasury, with the vital role it plays, should be the exception to this.”
