“British farmers produce the world’s best food and provide the raw materials to keep 4 million people employed”, according to East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight, who adds “It is crucial that we support the industry by ensuring measures are in place to encourage people to join the sector and to give farming a prosperous long-term future”.
Sir Greg made his remarks at Parliament on ‘Back British Farming Day’, 13th September.
He comments: “Farming is vital not only for the jobs it provides both in East Yorkshire and across the country but for its crucial contribution Britain’s £108 billion food and drink industry. The best way to help farming in Britain is to ‘buy British’. I am certainly giving my backing to Back British Farming Day.
