The MP for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle has been appointed as junior minister in charge of the countryside in a Government reshuffle. On Monday Conservative George Eustice, and Dan Rogerson Liberal Democrat MP for North Cornwall, were named parliamentary undersecretaries at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). They replace Farming Minister David Heath, who has been overseeing the controversial badger cull. It is not known whether Mr Eustice will take charge of the cull or whether it will be introduced in Cornwall. Downing Street said roles and responsibilities are still to be finalised. Mr Eustice, 42, who grew up on Trevaskis Farm at Gwinear, is a former member of Praze Young Farmers and former press secretary to David Cameron. See Mr Eustice's column on page 27.
