Boris Johnson recognises farmers' 'incredible work'

In the video shared on social media for the NFU’s 2021 conference, Mr Johnson recognised the past year had not been at all easy for anyone in the farming sector with poor weather and the challenges of the pandemic.

 

"The first thing I want to say is a heartfelt thank you for keeping the nation fed," Mr Johnson said.
