Health secretary Milburn quits the Cabinet

Health
secretary Alan Milburn has surprised Westminster pundits by resigning from the
Cabinet, ahead of a Government reshuffle.

Milburn,
seen as a key moderniser in the Government, has quit his job as health
secretary in a shock move today.

He
blamed the combination of a high-profile job and having a young family for his
decision to leave the cabinet.
