Dan Rogerson becomes a Minister

Congratulations to my MP Dan Rogerson who has become a minister in today's reshuffle. Dan becomes Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (ie a junior minister) at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Dan has spent a number of years on the Defra select committee and has a lot of expertise in the area - not surprising given that he has one of the most rural constituencies in the country. We'll see in the next couple of days exactly what his ministerial brief will entail.

Also joining the ministerial ranks today is Cornish Tory MP George Eustice who also becomes a junior minister at the same department.

I'm also glad to see that the loss of Don Foster from the local government department does not mean that there will be no Lib Dem there. Stephen Williams, MP for Bristol, takes over and is a very good appointment.
