Jobs for the boy

Ben Wallace, the Conservative MP for Lancaster & Wyre, thought he had Our Great Leader Brown stumped at Prime Minister's Questions yesterday: "Why do the people of Wales have a full-time Secretary of State, while our armed forces and the Scots must make do with a part-timer?"

Ouch.

Our impeccably briefed Secretary of State for Change and Prudence replied by listing Paul Murphy's responsibilities:
1) Secretary of State for Wales
2) Overseeing the British-Irish Council
3) Responsible for the joint ministerial committees on devolution
4) Minister responsible for digital inclusion
5) Responsible for data security and information assurance.

Are those in order of importance?

That's a lot of jobs for one man.

Not a good respose from Gordon Brown considering the other member of the Cabinet is a Secretary of State (x2).

The minister is also a Knight Commander of Merit with Star of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George.
Which takes a fair amount of ministerial time.
The motto of the Order is "In Hoc Signo Vinces" and it supports the Catholic Faith and Defends its teachings.
