I would like to ask the following.

Why has the UK Government moved away from "Ministry of..." names?

Traditionally, UK Government departments were named "Ministry of [blar]". For example,

  • Ministry of Transport
  • Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
  • Ministry of Education

In recent years, many of these have been retired in favour of "Department for [blar]". For example,

  • Ministry of Transport → Department for Transport
  • Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food → Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
  • Ministry of Education → Department for Education

Why is Britain getting rid of its "Ministries" and replacing them with "Departments"?

Where can I ask this?

I believe an appropriate site to ask questions like this is Politics SE. Nonetheless, you should first check their Help center to confirm this for your specific questions, as well as to help determine how to best structure them for their site.
