MONTGOMERYSHIRE farmers enjoyed a successful and busy day at Llanfair Caereinion Show, discussing #FarmingMatters with their local politicians and members at the FUW stand.
FUW Montgomery county executive officer Emyr Davies said: “We had a great day at the show and our stand was a hotspot for #FarmingMatters. We enjoyed catching up with members on the hay sofa and we highlighted the important role farming plays in our everyday lives when we met with Russell George AM and Glyn Davies MP.”
Union officials also continued to stress the need for an urgent agricultural summit in order to progress the vital constitutional issues that need to be addressed before EU powers are repatriated from Brussels to London.
“We appear to be focusing all our energy on the the long term changes that can only be made once trade relationships are understood, whilst ignoring the critical constitutional arrangements that need to be established by the UK government and all devolved administrations.
“They need to be working collaboratively to develop a solution and that’s why we have reinforced the urgent need for such a UK agri summit to be held as soon as possible,” added Emyr Davies.
