A Shropshire MP has been appointed to a key role supporting a top cabinet minister.

Lucy Allan and Jacob Rees-Mogg

Lucy Allan, MP for Telford, has been appointed parliamentary private secretary to Leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg.

She said: "It's a huge honour, I'm delighted to be joining the team."

A parliamentary private secretary acts as a minister's contact with MPs, tracking backbench opinion in Parliament.

Ministers choose their own parliamentary private secretaries, but have to get written approval from the Prime Minister.
