Trudy Harrison, MP for Copeland, has been appointed parliamentary under-secretary of state at the Department for Transport (DfT) as part of a cabinet reshuffle.

She replaces Rachel Maclean, who has moved to the Home Office.

Harrison has served as the Prime Minister’s Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) since December 2019 and, prior to that, as PPS across three great Government departments - DfE, MoD and DfT.

She has been the MP for Copeland since 2017 and before entering politics worked in the nuclear industry, as a nursery owner and for Copeland Borough Council. Harrison is a strong advocate of nuclear power.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson began his cabinet reshuffle on Wednesday (September 15) with a number of high profile changes at senior level, including the firing of education secretary Gavin Williamson, before announcing new junior ministers yesterday (September 16).

Grant Shapps has remained as secretary of state for transport.
