Shepherd’s pie can save Welsh farming after Brexit, suggest experts

Shepherd’s pie can help save the economy of rural Wales from devastation after Brexit, according to a team of experts.

Welsh Assembly member Baroness Eluned Morgan, who represents Mid & West Wales, hopes the ideas in her group’s report will stimulate debate about an often neglected part of the country.

Considering the potential economic consequences of Brexit, the report says: “Welsh Lamb has long been seen as a valuable product but does not easily compete with lamb from New Zealand, which is imported at much lower price.

“Furthermore, if Wales loses its current access to the EU market and has to depend on WTO rules, we may have to pay an effective tariff rate of 46% which could make Welsh lamb uncompetitive.”
