Britain 'set to be sidelined' in Juncker's Euro lineup

Incoming European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker appears to have sidelined the British representative in his new EC college lineup.

The website Euractiv said it has seen a draft version of a presentation which suggests that Britain's Jonathan Hill has been assigned to the energy and climate change brief despite David Cameron asking for a super-commisioner.

Mr Hill will report to Latvian Valdis Dombrovkis, who is the vice president for energy.

The leak also suggests that Germany has been assigned the crucial trade role while France, which asked for the economy position, has instead been given the competition title.
