Department for Transport to be shut down – reports
Unnamed sources have told The Telegraph that the government Department for Transport (DfT) is being shut down. At the same time it appears that the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills and the Department for Energy and Climate Change are also being axed. The unconfirmed reports suggest these remits will be covered by new departments for Industry and Infrastructure instead.
What we do know is that for Transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin has been made conservative party chairman, following Theresa May’s appointment as conservative party leader and therefore UK Prime Minister.
