Brexit concerns discussed at Brecon show

FUW officials met up with newly elected Brecon and Radnor MP Jane Dodds to discuss the most critical #FarmingMatters at the county show on August 3.

Speaking at the show, FUW Vice President Brian Bowen told the MP that the consequences for Wales’ economy of a no-deal Brexit are such that no responsible Government would allow the UK to leave without a deal, and nor would any responsible Parliament agree to this.

In light of Brexit, FUW Brecon and Radnor County Executive Officer Aled Jones also raised the issue of poor mental health in the farming community.

He said: “Our farmers are tied to the soil, they work the land, and plan long term. They put in long hours looking after the stock, and fight whatever the weather throws at them. As resilient as the farming community is, they are feeling the pressure.”
