Pershore's MP lends her backing to NFU farming blueprint

Evesham Editorial 13th Dec, 2023   0

PERSHORE’S MP Harriett Baldwin joined MPs from all over the country to show her support for people involved in farming, horticulture and food production.

The MP, who recently met with a delegation of local farmers who are members of the National Farming Union, attended a reception at the Houses of Parliament to see the launch of their farming manifesto.

Mrs Baldwin was briefed by NFU President Minette Batters on the document which is the union’s blueprint for farming in the future.

The West Worcestershire MP said:

“Farming and horticulture play a huge role in our local and national economy, and I regularly take time to meet with local growers to understand their priorities and to pass their views on to policy makers.

“Over recent weeks I have heard concerns from beef and dairy farmers, those involved in importing and exporting bulbs and the many growers who struggle to recruit staff to pick crops.

“Domestic food production could not be more important for our country and I welcome the National Farmers Union taking the time to come to Westminster to share their thoughts on the best way to support farmers in the future.”
