Edward Samuel Miliband (born 24 December 1969, St Pancras, England) is a British economist and politician. He has been chairman of the Treasury's Council of Economic Advisers, which directs the UK's long-term economic planning. He was elected Labour Member of Parliament for the South Yorkshire constituency of Doncaster North in the 2005 general election. He was appointed Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office on 28 June 2007 making him and his brother David Miliband the first brothers to serve in Cabinet since Edward and Oliver Stanley in 1938. Miliband was also appointed to the Privy Council as he works in close proximity to papers of state and The Queen. On 3 October 2008, Miliband was promoted to Secretary of State at the newly created Department of Energy and Climate Change at Cabinet level.

Early life

Miliband is the son of Marion Kozak and the late Marxist theorist Ralph Miliband (son of Polish-Jewish parents from Warsaw) who fled Belgium during the Second World War. He went to Haverstock Comprehensive School (now called Haverstock School Business & Enterprise College) on "Haverstock Hill" in Chalk Farm. He read PPE at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and Economics at the London School of Economics. As a teenager, he reviewed films and plays on LBC Radio's Young London programme as one of its "Three o'Clock Reviewers".After a brief career in television journalism, he became a speechwriter and researcher for Labour politician Harriet Harman in 1993, and then for Shadow Chancellor Gordon Brown the following year. In 2003–4, he spent a year's sabbatical at Harvard University, as a visiting lecturer in government.

In government

In early 2005 he resigned from HM Treasury and, in May, was elected to Parliament. In Tony Blair's cabinet reshuffle of 5 May 2006 he was made the Parliamentary Secretary to the Cabinet Office.
