Portsmouth to get its own Minister

A Minister for Portsmouth is expected to be announced with the decision to move Navy shipbuilding to Scotland with the closure of the city's BAE Systems yard causing the loss of over 900 jobs being sighted as the main reasons behind the move.

Labour and trade unions had criticised the government for not doing enough to create new employment in the city.

The front runner for the post is said to be Michael Fallon who is currently both minister of business and innovation under Liberal Democrat business secretary Vince Cable.

Liberal Democrat leader of the Portsmouth City Council, Gerald Vernon Jackson said he was "really pleased" about the "pretty rare" move.
