South West Norfolk MP Liz Truss has made her first appearance in the Commons today as Environment Secretary.

Just two days after being given her new job in the latest Cabient reshuffle she faced questions in the Commons on the Environment.

Ms Truss, who is 38, has been an MP for just four years.

"I'm delighted to have been appointed to this important role, and to have such an early opportunity to answer questions.

In the 48 hours since my appointment, I've not quite been able to speak to everyone, or look at every issue, but I know from my work in Norfolk how vital this department is."
