techUK CEO comment on new DCMS Secretary of State

Commenting on the cabinet reshuffle, Julian David, techUK CEO said:

"techUK is very sorry to see Matt Hancock move on from the Digital portfolio. As Minister for Digital, then as Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Matt has been a staunch supporter of the UK's tech sector both in Government and in other domestic and international fora. 

His move to lead the work of the Department for Health and Social Care is a clear recognition of the passion, determination and drive we have seen him show at DCMS. 

All of us here at techUK now look forward to working with Jeremy Wright and Digital Minister Margot James to continue to build on the success of our industry.

As we navigate our exit from the European Union and build a Global Britain, it will be crucial to have a voice at the centre of Government that understands the role the tech sector has to play not just in creating a prosperous economy but in finding solutions to society's most pressing challenges. In Jeremy Wright I am sure we will have an ally and a friend as we continue to build the UK digital economy."
