Defence Secretary in United Kingdom

Defence Secretary in the History

The Defence secretary is in charge of the Ministry of Defence. Tom King was brought into the Cabinet by Thatcher in 1983 and he did many roles in quick succession, but this was because of his ability to ‘master his brief’ quickly and deal with successive crises. He had a very small media presence. In the Major government he was appointed as Defence Secretary during the Gulf War.
