Conservative MP for Penrith and The Border Rory Stewart has been appointed as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at Defra.

It is unclear as yet whether he will replace Liberal Democrat Dan Rogerson, who lost his seat at the election, as Resources Minister.

At the time of writing, Defra had not revealed ministerial responsibilities.

He joins Secretary of State Liz Truss, plus ministers George Eustice and Lord de Mauley who all remained in the roles they held in the last government.

Rory Stewart was elected as an MP in 2010. Prior to that he had served as a senior official in the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq following the invasion of the country by US and British forces.

He has also worked in academia, as well as getting involved in writing and broadcasting.
