A Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State is the lowest of three tiers of government minister in the government of the United Kingdom, junior to a Minister of State and the more senior Secretary of State. Like most Ministers of State, holders do not sit in cabinet, although they may be members of a cabinet committee. They are bound by the Ministerial Code of conduct.

Although this position is the most junior ministerial office, Parliamentary Private Secretaries, who are unpaid helpers, are more junior still.
