OK – Be brief. It may be important but essentially it’s not very interesting ..
Ed Balls has assumed the post of Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF).
David Bell, previously Permanent Secretary of DfES, will assume the same responsibility in the DCSF.
The difference now is that the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) has been formed and is being led seperately by John Denham (Secretary of State). Ian Watmore will be Acting Permanent Secretary of DIUS.
