Barry Gardiner appointed Shadow Natural Environment and Fisheries Minister

A few weeks ago Tom Harris stepped down from the Shadow DEFRA team, saying:

“I know where my priorities lie; the task of juggling front bench responsibilities and being a husband and father to a young family located 400 miles away is simply beyond me.”

Today the party have confirmed that Brent North MP Barry Gardiner has been appointed to replace Harris as Labour’s Shadow Natural Environment and Fisheries Minister.
