NFU's hopes of staying in the single market 'out the window' #Brexit

NFU president Meurig Raymond said the organisation’s hopes of staying in the single market had ‘gone out the window’, and it was now focused on getting the best possible access to it from outside – unfettered by tariff and non-tariff barriers.

 

The NFU’s consultations with members made it clear non-EU trade was important to farmers, and will be more so in 10-15 years, so the organisation is demanding food and farming feature heavily in any new trade talks from the start.

 

Policy director Andrew Clark said: "There are obvious sensitivities where countries such as New Zealand and South America are concerned, but there are lots of markets round the world where there could be access.

 

"We don’t yet know what the agreements will be so it is important to make sure the UK Government knows where the sensitivities are."
