Knight Meets Local Farmers

East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight has met with local farmers and National Farmers Union representatives in Driffield to discuss issues of concern.

The meeting, organised by the NFU, covered a wide range of issues from bird flu to Brexit.

Sir Greg thanked the NFU for organising the meeting and said the tone was ‘positive and constructive’. He agreed to take up a number of the issues raised by farmers with DEFRA minister George Eustice MP.

Sir Greg said, “It is vital that we have good farming policy not only because of the jobs that farming provides both here in East Yorkshire and across the country but for its crucial contribution Britain’s food and drink industry and for our food security”.
