The roles are probably not entirely equivalent, but here is a Dutch reference from the "ministerie van buitenlandse zaken":

"Eind 2004 nam minister van Binnenlandse Zaken (‘Home Secretary’) David Blunkett ontslag naar aanleiding van gelekte informatie over een visumaanvraag, die naar alle waarschijnlijkheid op verzoek van Blunkett versneld afgehandeld zou zijn."

  -> Thanks Jarry - I should of course also have said that other terms are used in the English-speaking world

agree  polymath: e.g. Secretary of the Interior in the US, Minister of Internal Affairs in NZ, etc., etc.; 'interior minister' is IMO usually OK as a generic solution.
