Amanda Milling has been sacked as the Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party as Boris Johnson continues his cabinet reshuffle.

She has been serving as a Minister without Portfolio in the UK Cabinet since February 2020, and alongside Ben Elliott as Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party.

Milling has also been the MP for Cannock Chase in Staffordshire since 2015, and had previously worked in marker research before getting into politics.

She follows Gavin Williamson, Robert Buckland and Robert Jenrick who were also sacked from the Cabinet today.

In a tweet following her sacking Milling described holding the position as “a privilege and an honour.”

She said: “Thank you to the voluntary party and the team at CCHQ for their support.

“Thank you to @BorisJohnson for this opportunity. I will continue working to deliver on our plans to level up the UK.”

Earlier today a No.10 source had told the PA News Agency that Johnson will be conducting a reshuffle to “put in place a strong and united team” so that the UK could build back up from the pandemic.

“Yesterday, the PM set out his plan for managing Covid during the autumn and winter,” they added.

“But the Government must also redouble our efforts to deliver on the people’s priorities.

“The PM will be appointing ministers this afternoon with a focus on uniting and levelling up the whole country.”
