Phillip Hammond to Aviation Club

The London-based Aviation Club of the United Kingdom has confirmed that Secretary of State for Transport Philip Hammond will be the guest speaker at the Institute of Directors lunch on Thursday 9 June.  This seems to dispense of rumours that he might move in the forecast Spring cabinet reshuffle.  He has held the position since May 2010.

Mr Hammond (55) took a degree at Oxford in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.  He was elected Member of Parliament for Runnymede and Weybridge, on the Heathrow periphery in 1997 and is a member of the Cabinet.  Prior to becoming engaged in full time politics he was involved with small and medium-sized companies in manufacturing, property and construction and oil and gas, both in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. www.aviationclub.org.uk  www.dft.gov.uk
