About BAB

The NFU performs a crucial role in Brussels, advising and lobbying the EU Commission and European MPs on the issues which matter most to farmers.

The NFU's office  in Brussels (the British Agriculture Bureau or BAB) was set up in 1972 to represent the NFU. The main purpose of the office is to gather information and intelligence and to assist the NFU in lobbying the institutions of the European Union, since most laws affecting UK farmers are decided in Brussels, not Westminster.

BAB also represents NFU Cymru, NFU Scotland, Ulster Farmers Union and the National Pig Association.

    Comment: Most Euro MP will be familiar with trade mark products used around the house and garden, if they haven't used them personally they would have seen them on the shop shelf or at the garden center e.g Tumble weed, weedal. They use Glyphosate because it has a high LD level and also breaks down quickly on contact with the ground. Thus making it safer to use than a lot of shampoos. Each European country will have their own brands of the same products. Has it be pointed out to Euro MP`s that if Glyphosate is ban they will as will and the public as a whole will loose these household familiar products.
