Priti Patel, 43, was revealed as the new jobs minister in Prime Minister David Cameron?s latest re-shuffle.

Priti is the daughter of Sushil Patel, 64, who moved his family to Britain more than 40 years ago and ran a post office in rural Norfolk before settling as a shopkeeper in West London.

She told the Daily Mail in an interview that: ?My parents were kicked out of Uganda. They came to the UK with nothing, worked hard and set up a successful shop business.?

Mother of one Priti, who has been an MP for five years, was made Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury last year, overseeing tax policy, and was a regular in TV studios during the election campaign.
