Housing Minister sacked as Sunak continues with reshuffle

PUBLISHED: 14th Nov 2023

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has asked Rachel Maclean to step down as Housing Minister as part of his cabinet re-shuffle.  She becomes the 15th housing minister axed since 2010 

Ms Maclean posted on X formerly known as Twitter confirming her departure. It read “I’ve been asked to step down from my role as housing Minister. Disappointed and was looking forward to introducing the Renters Reform bill to committee tomorrow and later the Leasehold and Freehold Bill. It has been a privilege to hold the position and I will my successor well. 

Ms Maclean was appointed to the role on February 7th 2023 and previously served as justice Minister between September 7 and October 28 2022. 

Mr Sunak began a reshuffle yesterday after sacking Suella Braverman. Macleans departure is part of a re-shuffle aimed at addressing current Government challenges in the polls. 

David Phillip Commented ‘given how important housing is to our society it is a shame we have such ministerial musical chairs in this department which is one of the fundamentals of the economy as well as people’s sense of security and well-being. Many of the issues in the current property market go back before Macleans time in the role – the fixes are not quick either. We await the announcement of the new Housing Minister”
