Individual within the UK's shadow cabinet who "shadows" the Home Secretary
Shadow Home Secretary ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
In British politics, the Shadow Home Secretary is the person within the shadow cabinet who shadows the Home Secretary; this effectively means scrutinising government policy on home affairs including policing, national security, the criminal justice system, the prison service, and matters of citizenship. If the opposition party is elected to government, the Shadow Home Secretary often becomes the new Home Secretary, though this is not always the case. The office has been held by Labour MP Nick Thomas-Symonds since 5 April 2020.
