NFU South West Lakes Group Secretary Steven Brettle and two of his office’s NFU Farming Ambassadors (Ben Cresswell and Will Case) met with Barrow Independent MP John Woodcock to discuss current farming issues.
These included Brexit, labour shortages in the food processing and agriculture industry as well as food standards. Mr Woodcock was updated about the current state of the meat industry and the implications a poor Brexit deal could have.
Steven Brettle said: “The meeting was hosted by Ben Cresswell at Gleaston Castle. Hopefully Mr Woodcock will now utilise more information from the NFU and local farmers when he is in parliament.”
