An MP has lost his ministerial role in a cabinet reshuffle.

Oliver Heald, MP for North East Herts, has been removed from his post as solicitor-general and deputy to attorney-general Dominic Grieve.

Mr Heald, a former barrister, took up the post in September 2012 following another reshuffle and previously held the role of under secretary at the Department of Social Security in John Major’s government.

He said: “I was very fortunate to have held two posts in government as a minister and obviously that is a privilege.

“I have always been focused on helping my constituents in East and North Herts and there is still a lot of work to do for them which I intend to keep on doing.”

It is yet to be announced who will replace him.
