Newbury MP Richard Benyon has lost his post at Defra as Waterways minister (parliamentary under-secretary of state for natural environment, water and rural affairs).

He will be replaced by George Eustace, MP for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle.

George Eustace said: “I spent ten years working in the farming industry and policies relating to water and the fishing industry are particularly important  to Cornwall.  I am really looking forward to working with colleagues within Defra to champion the interests of rural communities.”
