Why Does the British Cabinet Have So Many Secretaries of State?

They have a Secretary of State for Justice, a Secretary of State for Education, and Secretary of State for Defense, and lots of other Secretaries of State.  Wouldn't it be simpler if they just had a Secretary of Justice, a Secretary of Education, a Secretary of Defense, etc.?

    That's just the way they say things, sort of like how they say "orientate" instead of "orient" (they mean the EXACT same thing).  ("Comment" and "commentate" DO mean something slightly different.)
