Ken Clarke has stepped down from the role of justice secretary. He will remain in the cabinet as an "economic adviser". He has been replaced by Chris Grayling. The International Development Secretary role has seen Andrew Mitchell shifted to become secretary to Conservative chief whip. His role is being taken by Justine Greening, who has been moved from the job of transport secretary. Her job has been replaced by Patrick McLoughlin, the former Conservative chief whip.
Owen Paterson is the new secretary for the environment, food and rural affairs with Theresa Villiers replacing Owen Paterson as Northern Ireland secretary.
