Lee Rowley Steps into Housing Minister Role

Lee Rowley Steps into Housing Minister Role

Lee Rowley steps into the role of Housing Minister following Rachel Maclean’s dismissal, marking the 16th change in this position since 2010. Rowley, previously the Parliamentary Under Secretary for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities, assumes a critical role in the government’s housing strategies.

Rowley’s prior experience as Parliamentary Under Secretary for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy should help him in the role as the government looks to usher in a new era of sustainable housing in the UK. Elected as the Conservative MP for North East Derbyshire in 2017, Rowley brings a background in both policymaking and constituency representation. This reshuffle also signals the return of David Cameron as Foreign Secretary and the appointment of James Cleverly as the new Home Secretary, taking over from Suella Braverman. Rowley’s entrance into the housing sphere underscores the government’s commitment to tackling housing challenges amidst broader ministerial changes.
