Chris Elmore MP has pledged to support the UK’s arable sector by raising the profile of its contribution to the nation’s economy, food supply and environment. At the #YourHarvest parliamentary event led by the National Farmers’ Union, Mr Elmore committed to visiting farmers in his constituency and working with them to champion the work farmers do in producing quality, safe and affordable food alongside maintaining and enhancing the environment.
Mr Elmore said: “A thriving arable sector is in the interest of all my constituents and every single person that eats British food. It is important that we fully appreciate how much the sector provides for the nation and I fully support this new initiative by the NFU. I am committed to working with the NFU to help deliver a Brexit that compliments the practicalities of food production, and allows the sector to flourish.”
