NFU calls on wannabe MPs to back its manifesto #GE2017

The union is asking candidates to support farming in five key areas – making Brexit a success; investing for growth; safeguarding short, fair and secure supply chains; placing science at the heart of policy making and caring for the countryside and rural communities.

 

NFU president Meurig Raymond said: “The General Election in June provides an opportunity for the farming sector to impress on candidates of all colours the critical value of British farming to our economy, to our wellbeing and to our environment.

 

“The success of British farming matters to the British electorate – especially at this time of unprecedented change. YouGov polling commissioned by the NFU this year shows 85 per cent of people think it is important for Britain to have a productive and resilient farming industry.”

 

Mr Raymond also said the union would work with the new Government to achieve a good Brexit with a ‘predictable and manageable’ transition process.
