THE FUW has reiterated warnings about the disastrous consequences of a no-deal Brexit, as new Prime Minister Boris Johnson takes on the role of leading the country.
“We are absolutely clear, no responsible UK Government would allow the UK to leave the EU without a deal. We have been relentless in highlighting the grave economic impacts for agriculture, rural communities and other industries of a hard Brexit.
“The latest analysis by Hybu Cig Cymru suggesting 92.5 per cent of our lamb export trade could disappear if we go over the Brexit cliff on October 31 highlights our concerns,” said FUW President Glyn Roberts.
Mr Roberts said he would be writing to the new Prime Minister, congratulating him on his appointment and would seek a meeting in the near future to discuss the Union’s concerns.
