Gloucester MP Richard Graham has quit his Government role just two days after a similar resignation.
Mr Graham has said he is standing down as parliamentary private secretary (PPS) to the Foreign Office Minister Hugo Swire.
He took to Twitter to say he wanted to focus more on dealing with Gloucester’s regeneration issues and his other roles such as David Cameron’s trade envoy.
After almost 4 years as an FCO PPS I've resigned to focus more on regeneration issues in #Gloucester & other roles eg as PM's Trade Envoy

His announcement came after David Burrowes said yesterday he was quitting as PPS to Environment Secretary Owen Paterson “in the best interests of my constituents and our party”.
Asked what she made of his resignation, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Gloucester, Sophy Gardner, said “Four years into the role is a bit late to realise that regeneration is a priority for Gloucester.
“He has kept his role as a trade envoy though which means he will still get to go on his nice trips abroad.”
