UIN HL14953, tabled on 14 April 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to give the Minister for Children and Families a position in Cabinet.

Answered on

28 April 2021

I refer the noble peer to the List of Ministerial Responsibilities which sets out the allocation of portfolios across government; the Secretary of State for Education has overall responsibility for children’s services and education.

The programme of Her Majesty’s Government, including our policies to champion the interests of children and young people, will be set out in the forthcoming Queen’s Speech.
