Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday named Gavin Williamson as Britain's new defence minister after his predecessor Michael Fallon was forced to step down over a sexual harassment scandal sweeping parliament.
May's Downing Street office in a statement announced the appointment of the little-known Williamson, previously the chief whip who enforced discipline for May's Conservative party in parliament.
