Robert Court tipped for Maritime Minister

[ September 9, 2020   //   ]

Robert Courts has been appointed Minister at the Department for Transport following Kelly Tolhurst’s move to Housing Minister to fill a gap created by the resignation of Simon Clarke. Mr Courts is MP for Witney, and has previously been a member of the House of Commons’ Transport Select Committee. He was also the parliamentary private secretary to the Environment Secretary before his appointment as Minister. The British Ports Association said that, assuming Mr Courts is the new Maritime Minister it looked forward to building a productive relationship.
