  • Frost will be a full member of Boris Johnson’s U.K. Cabinet

Prime Minister Boris Johnson appointed former Brexit negotiator David Frost to his cabinet, putting him in charge of relations with the European Union and maximizing the opportunities resulting from the U.K.’s departure.

Frost, who negotiated the U.K.’s trade deal with the EU, will be a minister of state in the Cabinet Office, Johnson’s office said in an emailed statement on Wednesday. His responsibilities will include working on domestic reform and leading the committee that manages Britain’s post-Brexit ties with the bloc.
