Therese Promoted to DEFRA Minister

Therese has been asked by new Prime Minister Theresa May to become Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Since the general election last year she has been serving as Deputy Leader of the House of Commons.

Therese said: "I am thrilled to have been appointed a Minister at the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs. With so many environmental jewels along our coast co-existing with significant industry including marine, nuclear and agriculture, as well as the challenges of erosion and flooding at one extreme and water shortages for farming at the other, I have had a great apprenticeship already.

"One of my main challenges will be managing expectations locally as I am Minister for the whole country, not just for the Suffolk Coast. I am looking forward to working with Andrea Leadsom, George Eustice and Lord Gardiner in this exciting department which touches everyone across our great country. Rest assured though, I will still be batting for Suffolk and working hard on behalf of constituents on local issues."
