  • Hear from David Willetts, UK MP

    The Right Honourable David Willetts has been a member of the UK Parliament for Havant in Hampshire since 1992. Over his career as MP, he has served in multiple roles including Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Shadow Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, and Shadow Secretary of State for Children, Schools, and Families.

    But it’s arguably in 2007 under the leadership of David Cameron that he took on a larger role within the management of education in the United Kingdom. He became the first Shadow Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities, and Skills in July 2007 and held that post until May 2010 when he became the Minister of State for Universities and Science following the general election. This is a post he held for 4 years until July 2014.
