Tuesday 15th July, 2014. London - In response to the appointment of Liz Truss MP as Secretary of State for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, a Greenpeace spokesperson said :


"Liz Truss has written extensively on the importance of science to education and the economy. If she can bring that respect for evidence and rigour into her new role, then we should  see a more coherent approach to the environment than the embarrassing shambles of the last few years. Common sense and the laws of probability dictate that Liz Truss will be better than Owen Paterson. She starts with a clean slate and we wish her well."
