Bath MP Don Foster becomes communities minister
Bath MP Don Foster has been made a minister in this week’s cabinet reshuffle.
The 65-year-old Liberal Democrat is now a minister of state in the Department of Communities and Local Government.
His boss will be Conservative Communities Secretary Eric Pickles, who on an election campaign visit to the city in 2010 mistakenly insisted that Mr Foster was retiring from politics.
Former teacher Mr Foster, who was first elected in 1992, had been his party’s culture, media and sport spokesman.
