Steve Double, Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay, has been appointed as Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Department of Health and Social Care by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Commenting, Steve said:
“I am pleased the Prime Minister has asked me to join his team as a PPS for the Department of Health and Social Care.”
“This is an unpaid position and I will be supporting Health Ministers in their work in Parliament.”
“I was offered a PPS post by the previous Government but declined due to it not being the right time for me. However, with a new Prime Minister with a positive and energetic programme for our country I am pleased to now accept this invitation to join his team in government.”
“Serving and representing the people of the St Austell and Newquay constituency on local and national issues will always be my priority, and I aim to use this position to ensure that I am able to do this even more effectively.”
