British Prime Minister Sunak will announce changes in the government today?
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is preparing to announce personnel changes in his government today and is considering options for a significant restructuring of ministries, The Times reported.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy could be restructured "to reflect Sunak's priorities", tweeted The Times journalist Stephen Swinford, adding that the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport could also expects restructuring.
According to the British edition, the restructuring of the ministries may lead to the appointment of new ministers.
