NEW secretary of state for education Nicky Morgan is to visit the Isle of Wight.

Just days after she replaced Michael Gove, it was confirmed she would be guest speaker at MP Andrew Turner’s newly re-launched Business Club.

She will attend a launch dinner at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club on July 28. She was invited while she was in her former position as economic secretary to the treasury.

Mr Turner said: "I have known her for many years and she is very impressive; demonstrated by the fact that she has been promoted to the cabinet just four years after she became an MP. She was my first choice as the guest for my new-look Business Club; now that she is Secretary of State for Education having her as our first speaker is even more of a coup."

Anyone interested in attending can call Mr Turner’s office (01983) 530808 or e-mail
