Brexit farming inquiry: UK ministers ‘refuse to engage’

UK ministers responsible for farming have been criticised for an “apparent refusal to engage” with the Welsh assembly environment committee’s Brexit inquiry.

Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom rejected an invitation to appear before assembly members while junior minister George Eustice cancelled at two days’ notice.

Committee chairman Mark Reckless wrote to Mr Eustice saying he was “extremely disappointed” by the cancellation.

The UK government said it was in “regular dialogue” with Welsh farmers.
