Oliver Dowden is a prominent politician and currently serves as the cabinet office minister in Rishi Sunak's government. Prior to this role, he held the position of chairman of Sunak's Conservative Party but resigned from the post in June 2021 following two by-election defeats for the party.

 

Dowden's political career began in 2015 when he was elected as a Conservative MP for Hertsmere, where he was born and raised. He considers Hertsmere to be his "home patch" and continues to reside in the area with his family. He received his education from Parmiter's School near Watford and went on to study law at Cambridge University.

Between 2010 and 2015, Dowden served in Downing Street, where he worked as an adviser to the prime minister on various issues. His work during this period was highly appreciated, and he was appointed as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his service.

 

Apart from his political work, Dowden is also involved in several community initiatives and is a patron of several local charities in Hertsmere. He has been a strong advocate for volunteerism and civic engagement in the area.

 

Dowden's appointment as the deputy prime minister is a significant development in the UK's political landscape. As a highly experienced politician and a key member of Sunak's government, Dowden is expected to play a crucial role in shaping the country's political and economic future in the coming years.

Prior to his political career, Chalk served as a barrister for 14 years, specializing in counter-terrorism, homicide, and serious fraud cases. His experience in criminal law has been valuable in shaping his views on justice and security, which he has brought to his work in parliament.

Before his appointment as the Minister for Defence Procurement, Chalk held other government positions such as the solicitor general for England and Wales under the late Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the prisons and probation minister.

Chalk was educated at Windlesham House School and Winchester College before attending Magdalen College, Oxford where he studied Modern History. His parents are Gilbert John Chalk and Gillian Frances Audrey Blois.

 

As a member of parliament, Chalk has been an advocate for various causes, including improving mental health services, reducing carbon emissions, and investing in local infrastructure.
