Leadsom seeks to reassure pig industry over Brexit concerns

Defra secretary Andrea Leadsom says government ministers are “absolutely aware’ of the potential threat to the UK pig industry posed by cheaper, low tariff, lower-welfare imports.

“We are working very hard to make the best possible deal we can for the UK.”
