City Minister reappointment brings necessary stability

On the announcement that John Glen MP will continue in his position as Economic Secretary to the Treasury and City Minister, Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK, said,

At a time of considerable change in government, John Glen’s reappointment as City Minister brings welcome stability and consistency. Since 2010 City Ministers have been a short-lived breed, with no fewer than seven in nine years. Continuity in this important role is very welcome.

During his time in the job, John Glen has been a valued interlocutor for the industry. We have appreciated his candour, command of detail and his commitment to promoting UK-based financial and related professional services across the world. We look forward to continuing working with him as we navigate Brexit and look to grow this industry’s position as a great British success story.
