Brokenshire's appointment comes just four months after the 50-year-old left government for surgery after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

Housing in particular remains a constant in the national headlines, with the government facing calls to speed up delivery of housing and to do more to make homebuying affordable to a wider audience.

Afalat said: "During [Javid's] time in the role housing has become a top domestic priority for the government and we've seen an important shift in the narrative on housing - including a move to a more balanced view of the response we need to solve our housing crisis".

He takes the lead role at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government at a critical time, as the Government is being forecast to miss its house building pledge to build a million new homes by 2020 by over 80,000 homes, assuming even most recent high building rates are maintained.

The chain of Tory power pose has a number of senior Conservative politicians pictured this way with George Osborne and his legs at the 2015 Conservative party conference in Manchester, and there was Theresa May in another picture the same week- and now with Sajid Javid we have a combo of power pose.

"The lack of ministerial continuity should worry the entire sector, so we hope that James Brokenshire can buck the trend of past ministers and provide stability to the government's housing approach and see through the much needed reforms".

Brokenshire's brief includes a raft of key environmental policies and he will immediately face calls to reintroduce zero carbon home standards for new properties, beef up enforcement of existing energy efficiency standards, and work more closely with councils and local authorities to roll out more effective waste and air quality strategies. "We look forward to continuing that relationship".
