Construction minister Lord Prior has left government after less than a year in the role, with fellow peer Lord Henley taking on the brief.
Lord Prior, who took over from Jesse Norman in January, is the third construction minister to leave the post in the past 18 months.
He is leaving government to take up the chairman role at University College London Hospitals.
Alongside his role as construction minister, Lord Prior was also co-chairman of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) alongside Crossrail boss Andrew Wolstenholme.
His exit comes as the CLC is lobbying government for a sector deal to provide £250m in funding for the industry to invest in research and development.
A CLC spokesman told Construction News: “Lord Prior has been a great supporter of the CLC and we would like to thank him for the work he has done for the sector.”
His replacement, Lord Henley, was a junior minister at the Department for Work and Pensions until June.
He has also previously served as a minister at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs under the coalition government.
The CLC spokesman added: “We look forward to a positive working relationship with Lord Henley.”
Meanwhile, Brexit minister Baroness Anelay of St Johns is also stepping down, the government announced today.
She will be replaced by Lord Callanan, who moves from his role as under-secretary for aviation and international security.
