DrewVegetarian Stroud MP David Drew has been appointed as a Shadow Defra Minister, as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn reshuffles of his junior Ministers.

Mr Drew, who regained in his seat in last month’s General Election, will serve under Sue Hayman, who has retained her position as Shadow Defra Secretary after the election.
