Farming has had a fair amount of coverage in the UK press recently, notably with concerns around a free trade deal between the UK and Australia. NFFN raised concerns about farming provisions within these deals, supporting efforts to enshrine our high domestic standards in law – sadly, this was unsuccessful during the Agriculture Bill, but we continue to press on the significant need for our standards to be protected by legislation.
While we await further details of the specifics of what has been agreed, it looks like a less than ideal situation for UK farmers, with many concerns simply ‘kicked down the road’ with a delay to tariff reductions etc.
NFFN have been very vocal on this throughout the discussions, making clear our members concerns, and you can read coverage here.
