Former attorney general Jeremy Wright will take charge of listings and heritage

Attorney general Jeremy Wright QC, a barrister, has been named Matt Hancock’s replacement as Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. Hancock has been switched out to health after just six months.

Wright’s responsibilities include final oversight of listing decisions.

He joined Parliament as MP for Kenilworth and Southam in 2005 and key interests since then have included justice and dementia, while his pastimes include music, golf and watching cricket.

He has not yet expressed views on architecture or heritage, but BD has trawled Hansard and other sources for any clues.
