THREE south west MPs are among those who have been appointed new roles in the Government’s reshuffle.

Devizes MP Claire Perry was appointed as parliamentary under secretary of state at the Department for Transport in the reshuffle on Tuesday.

She said: “I am so looking forward to being part of the DfT team rebuilding Britain’s infrastructure.” Dr Andrew Murrison, MP for south west Wiltshire, transferred from defence to Northern Ireland office minister.

He said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to serve as a defence minister for nearly two years with some really great people. I am looking forward to my new duties in Northern Ireland.”

Dr Murrison retains his role as David Cameron’s special representative for the commemoration of the centenary of the First World War.

Desmond Swayne, the New Forest west MP, has been appointed minister of state at the Department for International Development.

After over four years of cuts and under funding on Britains infrastructure she is going to be kept quite busy.
