E-commerce minister moves in re-shuffle

E-commerce minister Douglas Alexander will be moving from the Department of Trade and Industry to the Cabinet Office as part of the re-shuffle sparked by the resignation of Byers on Tuesday, according to the BBC.

The DTI said Alexander’s move to the Cabinet Office was subject to confirmation from Number 10. Alexander had been e-commerce minister since June last year, after helping to coordinate Labour’s election campaign.

Stephen Timms, previously schools minister, is moving to the DTI but it is unclear whether he will take the e-commerce brief.

Alistair Darling will become secretary of state for Transport, while Andrew Smith, previously chief secretary to the Treasury, will take over as secretary of State for Work and Pensions.
