NFU calls for work permits to ease farm labour shortage

The NFU has called for a work permit scheme to help ease a farm labour shortage expected to rise to 95,000 workers a year after the UK leaves the EU.

“Without basic assurances from government that this labour will be accessible in future, grower businesses face huge uncertainty and are delaying investment in British production.”
