TS: Treasury man holds seat

Sighs of relief all round at CIPFA's HQ last week when Andrew Smith held on to his seat at Oxford East.

Smith, as chief secretary to the Treasury, was due to speak at Wednesday’s institute conference in Bournemouth, but could have been put out of a job by the voting public last Thursday. Smith saw off a strong Lib Dem challenge to return to Westminster. Not only that, but he also managed to hold on to his job in the government.

Despite being tipped to move on to pastures new, he was the only person not re-shuffled.

TS could have suggested alternatives for CIPFA, including well known public sector supporter William Hague who appears to now have time on his hands.
