Earlier this week, Farmers For Action and Northern Ireland Agricultural Producers Association (NIAPA) representatives met Chair of the Agriculture Committee at Stormont William Irwin on the issue of DUP support for legislation on farm gate prices across the staples to be put in place after the election.

William Taylor, FFA Co-ordinator stated: “William Irwin is a farmer himself, with his son at the coal face and doesn’t need told just how bad things are down on Northern Ireland farms and furthermore, that NI young farmers and their families are not going to wave the current situation much long before changing profession.”

By the end of the meeting the conclusion was that there was currently no other solutions on the tables and the DUP would continue to consider the proposal.
