Reshuffles: Baroness Susan Kramer replaces Simon Burns. Mary Creagh replaces Maria Eagle
Susan Kramer has replaced Simon Burns as Minister of State at the Dept for Transport. Simon Burns had responsibility for aviation, but it not likely this will be under Susan Kramer, given her fierce opposition in the past to a third runway at Heathrow. Robert Goodwill has replaced Norma Baker as Under Secretary at Department for Transport, has been given transport. In the past he twinned his farm with Sipson! Mary Creagh has replaced Maria Eagle as Shadow Secretary of State for Transport.
