DEFRA Questions: Free trade and agriculture

The Farmers Union of Wales released a statement this week saying that denying Wales access to the Single Market and Customs Union would have catastrophic consequences. I wanted a clear response from the Government on this concerning statement. A response I did not get.

Many farmers in Delyn are concerned about access to a large market on our doorstep and want assurances that they will still have tariff free access. Many will be striking trade deals next March for 2019 onwards and the lack of detail from this Government is putting their livelihoods at risk.
