The government tax team

The new “tax” team has two new, junior, recruits:

The major positions remain unchanged but there is a new Exchequer Secretary, Robert Jenrick, and a new Economic Secretary,  John Glen

The full team, with their biographies, is:

Chancellor of the Exchequer                                                   Philip Hammond

Chief Secretary to the Treasury                                              Elizabeth Truss

Financial Secretary to the Treasury and Paymaster General Mel Stride

Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury                                      Robert Jenrick

Economic Secretary to the Treasury                                      John Glen

The predominance of Oxford University and its PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics) degree has been diminished in that John Glen is a graduate of the University, but his subject was history, and Robert Jenrick is a graduate of Cambridge.
