John Matthew Patrick Hutton (born
6 May 1955, London) is a politician in the United Kingdom. He is Labour Member of Parliamentfor Barrow and Furness in Cumbria, the current Secretary of State for Defence[ [http://www.number10.gov.uk/Page17065 Number 10 Press release] ] , and formerly the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.
Westcliff-on-Sea-born, John Hutton was educated at Westcliff High School for Boys and Magdalen College, Oxfordwhere he gained a BA in 1976 and a BCL 1978. From 1980-1, he was a research associate for Templeton College, Oxford. He went on to become a senior law lecturer at the Newcastle Polytechnic from 1981-92 before turning back to politics, this time to the Labour party.
Mr Hutton first stood for election in the Penrith and the Borders seat in 1987. Two years later, he also failed to be elected as an
MEPfor the Cumbria and North Lancashireregion. His election to the Barrow and Furness seat in the 1992 UK General Electionsaw him replace Cecil Franksas MP with a majority of 3,578. His majority increased to 14 497 in the Labour landslide of the 1997 Election
After being a part of the Department of Health from 1998, he was made a member of the Privy Council in 2001. In the reshuffle following the 2005 general election (in which his majority fell to just over 6,000), he was made
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancasterand Minister for the Cabinet Office, replacing his close friend and former flatmate, Alan Milburn.
His position in this role was short lived, however. Following the second resignation of
David Blunkett, Hutton was appointed as his replacement in the role of Secretary of State for Work and Pensionson November 2, 2005. Hutton was seen as one of Tony Blair's closest supporters but survived in cabinet following Blair's resignation in June 2007 and was moved by new Prime Minister Gordon Brown to be Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, which incorporated the bulk of portfolios from the now dissolved Department of Trade and Industry, including Energy security issues which many had expected to be ceded to Defra.
He was moved into the role of Secretary of State for Defence in the cabinet reshuffle on October 3rd, 2008.
John Hutton married Rosemary Caroline Little in 1978 in
Oxford. They had three sons and a daughter before divorcing in 1993.
