This list notes ministerial office holders in the 2010 Coalition Government.
Until the 2015 General Election, all Minsters carried on in their posts. After the Conservative party won a majority in the 2015 General Election, the Prime Minister announced senior government Cabinet appointments on 8 May 2015 at which point all Liberal Democrat Ministers ceased to be Ministers.
Where a Conservative Minister continued to serve in the new Government, this is indicated in the end date column in the note:
An end-date is given for all Ministers who left the Government where known.
The Commons briefing paper on limitations on the number of Ministers and the size of the payroll vote sets out the statutory limits that apply to ministerial appointments. Further information on Ministers is available on the Ministers’ topic page on the Parliament website which contains links to briefings produced by the House of Commons Library, the House of Lords Library and Select Committee reports.
Members Names Information Service; DODS People; Hansard and Number 10 press notices and the Government List of Ministerial Responsibilities.
