NFU letter to Gove stresses importance of good Brexit deal

13th Jun 2017 / By Alistair Driver

The NFU has written to new Defra Secretary Michael Gove, stressing the importance of a good Brexit deal for UK agriculture.

NFU president Meurig Raymond wrote: “With farming arguably the sector most impacted by Brexit, NFU members need certainty as soon as possible that this Government will make Brexit a success for British food and farming.

"To achieve our potential, we need a future post-Brexit trade arrangement that delivers the best possible access to the vital EU market, as well as continued access to a competent and reliable workforce. With your experience in reforming policy environments we look forward to working with you to create a new wider policy framework that better delivers for British food and farming - and for our nation."
