Backing British Farming

Neil signed the National Farmers' Union pledge board on Back British Farming Day.

Farmers in the South West contribute £1.25 billion to the local economy and provides 66,079 jobs – this is on top of the safe, affordable food farmers produce and British countryside they maintain.

Neil said:

"There are so many worthy reasons to support British farmers: they are responsible for securing our fantastic British food supply, looking after our world-renowned countryside and sustaining a dynamic rural economy. That is why I am proud to wear the NFU’s Back British Farming pin badge in Parliament today."
