LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May appointed Dominic Raab as the new Brexit Secretary on Monday after his predecessor quit in protest at the government’s plans for a close trading relationship with the European Union.
“The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of Dominic Raab MP as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union,” a statement from May’s office said.
Raab was previously a minister for housing.
