While many of the positions had been public before, as detailed in his list of PPSs and Vice-Chairs, the new official list seen by Guido finally gives official job titles to the roles:

  • Andrew Bowie – Vice Chairman for Youth Engagement and Northern Ireland
  • Sir David Evennett – Vice Chairman for Business Engagement
  • Caroline Johnson – Vice Chairman for Disabilities
  • Alan Mak, Vice Chairman for Backbencher policy and the Conservative Policy Forum/Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party Policy Board
  • Neil O’Brien, Vice Chairman for Thinktank Relations/Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party Policy Board
  • Dan Hannan, International Ambassador
  • Peter Gibson, PPS to the Party Co-Chairman
