Rishi Sunak has conducted a cabinet reshuffle that saw Grant Shapps replace Alok Sharma as energy and net zero secretary, amid a shake-up of government departments.
The prime minister also appointed Greg Hands as the new Tory party chairman, replacing Nadhim Zahawi, who was sacked over his tax affairs, and Lucy Frazer as the secretary for culture, media, and sport.
The restructuring has seen the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy broken up as part of the reorganisation, with the responsibility for energy being given to the newly formed energy and net zero department.
The Times suggested that the reshuffle would be "relatively limited," while The Telegraph suggested that changes to a number of ministerial roles were planned beyond the appointment of the party chairman.
The Independent focused on the new faces in the cabinet, while The New Statesman reported four new departments created: new cabinet-level positions for the departments for energy security and net zero, and for trade and business; an expanded remit for the office covering the developing world; and another new department for science, innovation and skills.
There are mixed assessments of the new appointments, with Greg Hands seen as a safe choice for the Tory party chairman, while Grant Shapps is seen as a long-standing ally of the prime minister.
The New Statesman sees the creation of the energy and net zero department as putting the government more in line with Labour.
One source suggested that the reshuffle would be limited, however, others suggest changes to multiple ministerial roles are planned.
