Boris Johnson has promoted Thérèse Coffey, an MP with an anti-LGBT record, to serve in his Cabinet – meaning a majority of his top team are now MPs who opposed equal marriage.
The PM was forced to make changes to his Cabinet after Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Minister for Women and Equalities Amber Rudd quit and resigned from the Conservative Party.
MP for Suffolk Coastal Thérèse Coffey has been named the new work and pensions secretary, but she will not take on the role of equalities minister – likely due to her views on LGBT+ rights.
The new equalities minister is yet to be announced at time of publication.
