MP and Keynote speaker, Jo Johnson has been appointed as the head of David Cameron’s new policy unit.
The Prime Minister has set up a new advisory board on policy after he was accused of failing to listen to his fellow MP’s and Tory activists. The aim of the new policy unit led by Jo Johnson will be to come up with new initiatives to give the Conservative party a clear sense of direction in time for the next general election.
Other MP’s on the panel include Battersea MP Jane Ellison, Rossendale and Darwin MP Jake Berry and the former leading critic of the House of Lords reform, Jesse Norman.
A source from the Conservative party stated "The advisory board will strengthen the connective tissue between Downing Street and the Parliamentary party, and Jo Johnson will be a great asset in helping the Prime Minister drive Conservative policy priorities throughout government."
