With only weeks until Brexit, and the threat of no-deal remaining in place, the NFU want answers from the government.

Fifty questions about the future of British farming, and how the government will protect it, have therefore been sent from the union to Number 10.

The topics of the questions include issues surrounding trade and welfare standards, taxes on imports and exports, immigration policy, additional red tape, low carbon solutions, food labelling and what will happen to farm payments when the UK is no longer part of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

NFU president Minette Batters said it was time the government provided “stability for our industry”.
