Farmers call for new law to guarantee food standards


By Edward Venmore

A major concern for the farming industry at present is ensuring that food standards are protected after the UK leaves the EU.  

The NFU has said they will fight any attempt to encourage cheap imports after Brexit in an effort to cut food bills.  They also consider that a no deal exit will be catastrophic for the industry and has the potential to open the UK to goods that are not produced to the high standards of food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection that are the hallmark of British farmers.

Michael Gove has urged MPs to back the Brexit deal and warned of considerable turbulence for farmers if the UK left on 29 March without a deal with the EU.
