A ‘clerical error’ welcomed party grandee back to frontline politics after he was sacked for rebelling against Brexit
THERESA May was left red faced last night after a letter welcoming sacked Lord Heseltine back to the Government was sent to MPs.
Just days after the party grandee was fired for rebelling on Brexit, the Welsh Secretary wrote that he was “delighted” Hezza had signed up to help his office.
Last night No10 said it was “a clerical error” that had been withdrawn.
The letter from Tory Alun Cairns stated Lord Heseltine had offered his “expertise” to ministers and officials over a business project in Swansea Bay.
The Welsh Secretary wrote: “We have a good plan for the region, but we now need to make it a great plan.

“I’m therefore delighted that Lord Heseltine has offered to support the final stages of the deal.”
“I am confident that with a small amount of work, and the expertise of Lord Heseltine, we will soon be in a position to make an agreement on the deal,” it added.
After the letter was received by Welsh MPs on Wednesday the PMs official spokesman said the references to Lord Heseltine in it were the result of “a simple clerical error”.
