Byers has already made clear his determination to continue Mandelson’s work of boosting Britain’s entrepreneurs, but while he supports moves to help failed businessmen who go bust through no fault of their own, Byers has yet to give any indication of his views of limited liability partnerships or self-regulation. Byers’ move is part of a sweeping reshuffle of the Treasury and trade teams caused by the demise of Mandelson, who was forced to resign after admitting borrowing #373,000 to buy a London house from Paymaster General Geoffrey Robinson, who also quit. Byers was replaced as chief secretary to the Treasury by former health minister Alan Milburn. Long-serving treasury team member Dawn Primarolo succeeds Robinson. Barbara Roche succeeds Primarolo at the Treasury. Roche had been small business and IT minister under Mandelson. Her job goes to Blairite Michael Wills.
