Anne Milton expected to stay as Skills Minister

Anne Milton expected to stay as Skills Minister

Anne Milton is expected to remain at the Department for Education as apprenticeships and skills minister.

Ms Milton, who spent 25 years working as a nurse in the NHS, had been strongly tipped to replace Jeremy Hunt as health secretary. But yesterday, 10 Downing Street confirmed that Mr Hunt had been given the expanded brief of health and social care secretary.

And despite a change in education secretary after the resignation of Justine Greening from the Cabinet and the subsequent appointment of Damian Hinds, it appears that Ms Milton is set to keep her post. She is currently still listed on the Department for Education website. 

Anne Milton, was tipped to replace much maligned Jeremy Hunt as Health Secretary in Theresa May's cabinet reshuffle.

However Mrs May decided to keep Mr Hunt in the same position, and added social care to his responsibilities, despite speculation he would be demoted to Business Secretary, after overseeing one of the worst NHS crisis in years.

Former nurse Mrs Milton was the favourite to replace Mr Hunt, but this has now been confirmed as not being the case.
