Ed Vaizey appointed as new architecture minister

The new coalition government has appointed Ed Vaizey as the new architecture minister. The 42-year-old MP for Wantage and Didcot replaces the previous Labor minister Margaret Hodge as under-secretary of state for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport, and will be responsible for arts and broadcasting.

Vaizey has affirmed that he means to continue his pledge to scrap the ARB – an independent, public interest body which has regulated the architectural profession since 1997. A trustee of the Heritage of London Trust and the National Churches Trust, Vaizey has regularly met with the RIBA in his past position on the Tory shadow culture team and publically backed CABE during a pre-election hustings for architects.
