One more Welsh angle: Kim Howells loses his job as a Foreign Office Minister.
He gets the consolation prize of the chair of the security and intelligence committee, which oversees the work of MI5 and MI6.
The Pontypridd MP is said to be happy with his new role, which has become a traditional one for
Ministers on their way out of government.
He takes over from Marget Beckett, who's returning to government as the new Housing Minister. Her predecessor? Paul Murphy.
