Downing Street confirmed officially that Jeremy Hunt has been made chancellor.
During the leadership contest over the summer, Hunt put himself forward to be the next Tory leader but after not gaining enough support from fellow MPs he supported Rishi Sunak’s bid.
Hunt will be the fourth chancellor this year.
