Accountant takes senior role in Lib-Con reshuffle

CA Michael Moore appointed Scottish secretary

A fourth accountant has been appointed as a minister in the Lib-Con
coalition, in a mini reshuffle following the sudden departure of former chief
treasury secretary David Laws.

He is new Scottish secretary Michael Moore, who qualified as a Scottish
chartered accountant working in the Edinburgh office of accountants Coopers
& Lybrand where he became a manager in the office’s corporate finance
practice.

Moore is MP for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk, and a previous Lib Dem
spokesman for foreign affairs – and then international development.

He replaces Danny Alexander who took over from Laws.

The other accountant-ministers are financial secretary Mark Hoban, a former
chartered accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers; economic secretary Justine
Greening, a former chartered accountant with Price Waterhouse; and education
minister Nick Gibb, a former chartered accountant with KPMG.

Labour’s director of finance and administration, Roy Kennedy, was made a
working peer by his party.
