Welsh consultation launched on how to progress post-Brexit

News

Plaid Cymru has launched an industry-wide consultation seeking views on the way ahead for rural areas and the countryside following the decision to leave the European Union.

 

“Leaving the EU means a very different shape for agricultural and environmental policies,” says Simon Thomas, the party’s Welsh Assembly shadow cabinet member for energy, climate change and rural affairs.

 

“A Plaid Cymru Welsh Government could adopt a broader economic approach to supporting rural Wales by including funding for broadband infrastructure and a support mechanism for farmers that recognises the value they bring to maintaining the environment and landscape we value.

 

Fight for farmers

 

“Plaid is prepared to fight for farmers and the rural economy. Let’s see if those who argued for exiting the EU deliver on their promises.

 

“I urge people to make their views known on the principles that could underpin a wholly Welsh agriculture and rural environments support system.”
