Michael Gove has left the Department for Education to become chief whip as Prime Minister David Cameron conducts the most wide-ranging reshuffle of his government since coming to power.

Announcing Gove’s move to chief whip on Twitter, Prime Minister David Cameron said that he would have ‘an enhanced role in campaigning and doing broadcast media interviews’. Gove has been replaced by Nicky Morgan, the current financial secretary to the Treasury, who was first made a minister in October 2013.
