Defra secretary Andrea Leadsom has unveiled plans for a major consultation on the UK’s post-Brexit farm policy – describing it as a “once in a generation opportunity” for British agriculture.
“This will be your chance to tell us, in writing or at the many stakeholder meetings we’re planning around the country, your views and ambitions.”

In a keynote speech at the Oxford Farming conference, Mrs Leadsom said she was preparing to publish two consultation documents.
One consultation will cover the future for food and farming, the other will cover the environment, she told conference delegates on Wednesday (4 January).
