Mordaunt was appointed Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Decentralisation at the Department for Communities and Local Government by Prime Minister David Cameron in the 2014 cabinet reshuffle.
During Mordaunt’s time as Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Decentralisation, she was accused by the Fire Brigades Union “of misleading MPs over assurances given to firefighters from fire authorities regarding what would happen to their pensions if they fail fitness tests”. This dispute led to strike action by firefighters over the increase of retirement age.
