Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU) representatives met with the Shadow Environment Minister, Ruth Jones MP and the Shadow Farming and Food Minister, Daniel Zeichner MP on Tuesday (12 May).

​Topics of discussion during the meeting included the role out of Future Support programmes including soil testing and the need for future support for agriculture to be provided on a long-term, inflation-proofed basis. UFU representatives also highlighted the urgent need for the next UK government to seek an SPS/Vet Agreement between the UK and the EU to resolve outstanding Brexit issues and deal with UK-EU divergence which negatively impacts NI and the vital role the agri-food sector plays in NI’s economy, producing food to feed over 10 million people.
