New Cabinet

I can't quite work out what has happened to Communities as a brief in Cabinet.Ruth Kelly was there before, but all I can now find is a new post of Housing held by Yvette Cooper. After her aversion to LGBT rights,where her personal beliefs and actions conflicted with the job description of 'equalities' , perhaps Kelly will will have a brief she can actually support rather than undermine?

Update I see Hazel Blears has the role of Communities Secretary, which includes Local Govt, Planning, the Environment and Equalities (and Housing seperated ?). Hmmm...
