On 13 June 2017 Mark Field was appointed a Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Standing down

A prominent supporter of the United Kingdom remaining in the European Union during the 2016 EU Referendum and of Jeremy Hunt's leadership bid in the 2019 contest, Mark Field left his post as a Foreign Office Minister when Boris Johnson's premiership began. He stood down from the House of Commons at the UK/General election/2019.

Mark Field married celebrity agent Victoria Elphicke, sister of Charlie Elphicke, in 2007. They live in Westminster and Mallorca with their son, Frederick and their daughter, Arabella.[2]

Field's first marriage to investment banker Michèle Acton ended in divorce in 2006, with his ex-wife citing his affair with Liz Truss[3] who is now Conservative MP for the constituency of South West Norfolk since 2010, and is challenging Rishi Sunak to become Leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the 2022 leadership contest.[4]
