Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s restructuring of Whitehall saw the creation of four new government departments aimed at stimulating economic growth and addressing the energy crisis, including a new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero.

Mr Sunak also replaced sacked Tory Party leader Nadhim Zahawi with Greg Hands, who had served as Trade Secretary.

“I think we’ve seen, especially in the last year, the impact on people’s bills back home when energy policies don’t work properly when we depend on imported energy from hostile countries,” Prime Minister Sunak said.

“That’s why the creation of a new division specifically focused on energy security and Net Zero is so important.”
