The NFU will petition the House of Lords to ensure farmers affected by HS2 are receiving a fair deal.
This will be the second time the NFU has submitted a petition on HS2 – the first was to the House of Commons – giving NFU leaders another opportunity to make the case on key issues.
President Meurig Raymond said: “Having made the case in the House of Commons already, the NFU is now ensuring that the House of Lords is fully aware of the impact of HS2 on farming and the pressing need to mitigate its effect. We’ve been pushing for MPs to recognise that fields are the shop floor of farming businesses and they must have both continuity and certainty - we will continue this work in the House of Lords.”
