Rebecca Pow has been named as the new minister for arts, heritage and tourism, as Michael Ellis takes flight to take a ministerial position at the Department of Transport.
Pow, the MP for Taunton Deane, tweeted: "Honoured and absolutely delighted to be appointed as parliamentary under secretary of state for arts, heritage and tourism. A glorious remit with a cracking team. Looking forward to immersing myself in it all."
The politician (pictured, left) was previously personal private secretary to the work and pensions secretary.
Commenting on Ellis' departure, she added: "Thank you for your support for tourism and hospitality and championing them as growth champions across Whitehall."
Ellis had held the position since January 2018.
