NFU concern at Brexit impasse

25th Oct 2017 / By Alistair Driver

The NFU has expressed concern over the apparent roadblocks holding back progress in Brexit negotiations between the UK and the rest of the EU, highlighting how crucial a successful trade deal is for British farmers.

NFU President Meurig Raymond said: "With less than a year and a half until our departure from the EU, farmers and growers are fast running out of patience with both parties over the Article 50 negotiations. The time has come for both the UK and EU governments to acknowledge that businesses and individuals across Europe will suffer if a deal securing an ongoing and closely-integrated economic relationship is not reached."
