Fiona speaks up for Cheshire Farmers in the House of Commons

Speaking in the House of Commons, Fiona said:

"As we know, the potential of leaving the EU is creating some uncertainty so can the Minister reassure Cheshire farmers and the National Farmers Union that the current funding schemes that their members are working with will not be phased out until replacements are available to ensure that there will not be any loss of funding during any period of transition?"

Robert Goodwill MP, Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food said:

"We have made the decision clear with regard to the 2019 and 2020 schemes, and I remind farmers that the deadline for applications this year is 15 May as usual. I hope that they will get their applications in; sadly, in most years, we get a lot of applications in the last 24 hours."
