Announcement today will confirm appointment of Conservative MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner

Conservative Nick Hurd is to be appointed as the new charities minister today.

Hurd, who was 48 yesterday, has spent 18 months as shadow charities minister after succeeding Greg Clark in the job in 2008.

He will take over at the Office of the Third Sector in the Cabinet Office. The Conservatives said before the election that it would be renamed the Office of Civil Society.

The son of Douglas Hurd, a Cabinet minister in the Thatcher government, he studied at Eton College and Oxford University before embarking on a career in business.

He became an MP in 2005 and this month increased his majority in the north-west London constituency of Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, securing a majority of 19,060 over the Labour candidate.

Clark was yesterday appointed as the minister responsible for decentralisation in the Communities and Local Government department.
