Farmers ‘do not trust’ Welsh Government over subsidies

Farmers do not trust the Welsh Government to deliver a fit-for-purpose subsidy system after Brexit, the Welsh Conservative leader has said.

Andrew RT Davies said they had more confidence in Westminster to design a Common Agricultural Policy replacement.

But Rural Affairs Secretary Lesley Griffiths said there was “little appetite” from farmers for Westminster to take control.

The comments came on the first day of the Royal Welsh Winter Fair.
