The Houses of Parliament

Following appointments made by the new Prime Minister Theresa May, our parent department the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has welcomed a number of new Ministers.

Our new Secretary of State for Culture is Karen Bradley MP. Matt Hancock MP has been appointed the new Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, with day-to-day responsibility for The National Archives.

We have worked with Matt Hancock MP on various issues in his previous capacity as Minister for the Cabinet Office, including file releases, the Government’s response to Sir Alex Allan’s Digital Records review and the use of vellum for printing Acts of Parliament. Our minister’s responsibilities at DCMS will also include the digital economy, arts and culture, media and creative industries.
