Changes proposed to Norfolk's constituencies

Andrew Sinclair

BBC Look East political correspondent

Plans to re-draw Norfolk's parliamentary constituencies have been published this morning.

Unlike some parts of the UK, we get off quite lightly. The proposals include reducing the number MPs from 650 to 600, but Norfolk will still have nine MPs, although the size and shape of every seat will change.

Most of the changes are minor but the Mid Norfolk constituency will lose Wymondham (which goes back to South Norfolk) while South West Norfolk will be renamed Thetford & Downham Market and cross the border to take in Littleport in Cambridgeshire.

Labour's Clive Lewis may have to work a little harder to hold on to his Norwich South seat which inherits Conservative-leaning Costessey and Cringleford.

His Conservative neighbour, Chloe Smith, who only has a majority of 507, might feel a little safer as Norwich North will extend into Broadland.

But these are only proposals from the Boundary Commission.

The public has one final say on the plans and then they'll need to be voted on by MPs.

Given how much else is going on at Westminster, and the fact that these plans do not have cross-party support, it is possible that they'll never get approved.

Ministerial appointment in PM's reshuffle

The Norwich North MP Chloe Smith has been made a minister in the Northern Ireland office.

Last week, Ms Smith was re-elected to the seat for a fourth spell, with 21,900 votes.

It was a closely fought battle - the Conservative MP took just 507 more votes than Labour's Chris Smith.

As we reported earlier this week, Elizabeth Truss, MP for South West Norfolk, has moved from Justice to become Chief Secretary to the Treasury, and Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis was made Immigration Minister and given a seat at the cabinet table.

Cabinet roles for Norfolk MPs

Two of Norfolk's MPs have retained ministerial jobs in the Prime Minister's cabinet reshuffle.

South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss moves from Justice to become Chief Secretary to the Treasury and retains her seat in the cabinet, while Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis remains a junior minister at the Home Office, but will now also get to sit around the cabinet table.

Ms Truss will be Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond's number two at the Treasury.

She'll be responsible for persuading government departments to cut their budgets.

She'll also oversee infrastructure spending, a cause close to her heart having campaigned to upgrade the A11 and Ely rail junction.

Mr Lewis keeps his job as Minister of State for policing and fire services at the Home Office, but he's also being allowed to attend cabinet.

He's an ally of Theresa May and she needs all the friends she can get around the cabinet table.

Brandon Lewis is still up....

...and tweeting.

The MP for Great Yarmouth who won his seat back resoundingly reminds his Twitter followers that the election has actually been won by the Tories, despite commentators describing the night as effectively a 'political loss' for his leader, Theresa May:
