British PM Johnson welcomes new cabinet after reshuffle

Johnson greeted his new cabinet of senior ministers on Friday (February 14), vowing to repay the trust of voters by improving infrastructure, cutting crime and building more hospitals.

Rishi Sunak, who was appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer after a shock departure from Sajid Javid on Thursday (February 13), arrived at Downing Street ahead of the meeting alongside former Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, who has taken up the post of Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

Johnson's team had carefully choreographed the reshuffle, presenting it as an opportunity to foster new talent, particularly among women, while also rewarding loyalists.
