Christopher Pincher has retained his role as housing minister as Boris Johnson’s reshuffle concludes. 


The MP for Tamworth tweeted this morning to say that he had been reappointed as housing minister, a role he has now held since February 2020.

The stint makes him the longest serving holder of the role since Brandon Lewis left the post in July 2016.

Mr Pincher was one of the last appointments to be announced, with most of the junior government roles announced on Friday.



This, alongside the appointment of new ministers Kemi Badenoch and Neil O’Brien to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), led some to speculate that Mr Pincher may lose his role.

However he tweeted: “Pleased to be re-appointed as the Minister of State for Housing at MHCLG.

“Now back to work on our ambitious plans for building back better, delivering our reforms to help those who want a decent home of their own to have one.”
