Sporting Gun - - SNAPSHOTS -

Michael Gove (pic­tured) has been ap­pointed as the new Sec­re­tary of State for En­vi­ron­ment, Food and Ru­ral Af­fairs, in an un­ex­pected re­turn to cabi­net fol­low­ing a post-Gen­eral Elec­tion reshuffle by Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May.

Mr Gove told Sky News he was “sur­prised and de­lighted” at his ap­point­ment and would work to en­sure ru­ral work­ers are “at the heart of pol­i­cy­mak­ing”. He takes over from An­drea Lead­som, who has been made leader of the House of Com­mons. Both ran against Mrs May in the Con­ser­va­tive lead­er­ship bat­tle last year.
