Changes in the House of Lords
Some changes have been announced to the government lineup in the House of Lords. Lord Drayson (Paul Drayson) has stepped down as Minister for Defence Procurement and is replaced by Lady Taylor of Bolton (Ann Taylor), a former Chief Whip and Leader of the House of Commons. Lord Evans of Temple Guiting (Matthew Evans) has left the whips office - and Lord Bach (Willy Bach) [pictured] has returned as a whip - with responsibilities for the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR); Ministry of Justice; the department for Culture, Media and Sport [he is a big Leicester City FC fan); the Treasury and the Cabinet Office.
