Lib Dem MP for Brent Central is casualty of cabinet reshuffle

Sarah Teather has been stripped of her role as minister for children and families today (Tuesday).

The move comes as part of Prime Minister David Cameron’s cabinet reshuffle.

The Liberal Democrat MP for Brent Central will be replaced by fellow Liberal Democrat David Laws.

Rumours had surrounded Miss Teather’s position throughout the day and escalated after she cancelled a pre arranged web-chat on parenting website Mumsnet, scheduled for 1pm this afternoon.
