“For quickly moving Defra into a position of leadership after years of inertia.”

Michael Gove

Environment Secretary
Defra
Michael Gove MP was named Environment Secretary in June 2017, a decision criticised by many, including Green Party Co-Leader Caroline Lucas who called him 'entirely unfit' to lead Defra. Since, he has set his department to work on the Resources and Waste Strategy, announced plans to introduce a deposit return system for single-use beverage containersIn the months and lead action against ocean plastics. However, his attention has been almost entirely taken up by Brexit in recent times, especially as Defra has the most work streams in preparing for the UK's departure from the EU.
