All change for Welsh MPs
John Morris steps down as Attorney General
As Torfaen MP Paul Murphy begins work as the new Secretary of State for Wales, he will be joined by the Delyn MP David Hanson in a new Welsh team at Westminster.
At No10, Mr Hanson said "I am very excited about the opportunity to do good things in Wales."
The Neath MP Peter Hain has been promoted from the Welsh Office to become a Minister of State at the Foreign Office.
He has been replaced by Lord Williams of Mostyn, who is currently a Home Office Minister and spokesman for the Welsh Office in the Lords.
Paul Murphy spent his first day as Secretary of State touring the Assembly in Cardiff with his predecessor.
Mr Murphy - who will decide the National Assembly budget - spent the day with Alun Michael, who is leaving Westminster to concentrate on his role as Assembly First Secretary.
Mr Michael said he was delighted by Mr Murphy's appointment. The relationship between the two will be crucial to the Assembly's future.
The Tories are less welcoming - their Assembly leader Rod Richards said Mr Murphy "isn't up to the job".
