Theresa May has said her reshuffle determines the governmental forces review “more like the country it serves” with a “new generation” of ministers brought in.

The PM has appointed several new faces to her ministerial team.

The principally junior ministerial appointments come after Monday’s cabinet-level changes.

These provoked the acceptance of education secretary Justine Greening and were branded a “lacklustre PR exercise” by Labour.

Of Tuesday’s appointments, six men and eight females were new additives to authority, including five from ethnic minorities and 11 who were elected in 2015.
