Farm ministers urged to progress framework for agriculture

The Farmers’ Union of Wales has urged all UK agricultural ministers to make progress in developing a post-Brexit UK framework for farming.

The call comes amid fears of deepening divisions between devolved governments – with a detrimental impact on farmers.

Agriculture is a devolved issue, but the UK government has so far refused to say whether it will hand on powers from Brussels to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland post-Brexit.

Concerns are growing that discussions remain at a relatively early stage, despite Brexit being little more than two years away.
