Rebecca Pow MP returns to DEFRA

Rebecca Pow MP has been re-tasked with the resources and waste brief at DEFRA. Pow (pictured below cutting a ribbon during the start-up of the corrugator at the then Rigid Containers facility in Wellington, Somerset), was part of the department until July this year, when she resigned. She had been in charge of the waste portfolio until replaced by Jo Churchill in 2021.

This appointment follows another change at DEFRA, following the appointment of Thérèse Coffey as Secretary of State.
