My previous post was already dated when I wrote it. I now see David Heath has also been axed, replaced by another SW Lib Dem Dan Rogerson. According to Farmers Weekly, it’s still unclear which new MP will take on which role, or indeed whether the roles will be changed.
I’ll post as soon as I find out.
The YouGov website is still in denial: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-environment-food-rural-affairs – but it would seem that being Cornish is a strong selection criterion for being a Defra junior minister!
thanks Dave. I guess their focus is on twitter and they have forgotten about YouGov.
