Charles Kennedy has made Jo Swinson Liberal Democrat Shadow Minister for Culture, Media and Sport
Charles Kennedy, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, has announced the appointment of his new Liberal Democrat Shadow Ministers which follows his recent announcement of the new line up in the Liberal Democrat Shadow Cabinet.
Among the appointees, Jo Swinson MP has been made Shadow Minister for Culture, Media and Sport.
Charles Kennedy said: “Following the successful reshuffle of the Liberal Democrat Shadow Cabinet, I am delighted to announce the new Liberal Democrat Shadow Ministerial responsibilities.
“With the Tories showing no signs of sorting out their internal struggles or even appointing a new leader, attention will increasingly be focused on the Liberal Democrats to act as the real alternative to the Government. Our new team of Shadow Ministers are in an extremely strong position to put the arguments of the Liberal Democrats at the top of the agenda as we begin the new parliament.”
Jo Swinson commented: “I’m delighted that Charles Kennedy has given me this responsibility. I’m looking forward to bringing a Scottish perspective to the wide range of issues covered by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, including the future of the BBC and the Olympic bid.
