Press release: PM: We will deliver a farming policy which supports agriculture and improves the environment

first_imgDuring her visit the Prime Minister will also meet with the Wales Young Farmers Club, and stall-holders in the Food Hall, sponsored by Food is GREAT, alongside setting out measures from the 25 Year Environment Plan to protect the nation’s countryside and steps to bring forward the first Environment Bill in over 20 years. This Government is committed to supporting the half a million people who work in agriculture and growing our world leading food and drinks sector, which contributes over £100 billion to the UK economy. But we also need to protect the farmed environment for future generations. Leaving the EU presents us with a unique opportunity to transform our food, farming and environmental policies so we can have a healthy and prosperous agricultural industry that is fit for the future, and helps us to leave the environment in a better place than we found it. Scrapping the Common Agricultural Policy, and introducing a simpler system which provides funds in return for public goods, like improving water quality, reducing emissions and planting wild flower meadows to boost biodiversity, is fundamental to our new approach. I want to make the most of the freedoms provided by Brexit to design a new scheme that is less bureaucratic, and does away with the overly prescriptive information farmers currently have to provide to apply for grants. I commend our hard working farmers up and down the country, and here in Wales, who deserve better than the fundamentally flawed CAP system. That is why I want to hear from them today about what they need so we deliver a farming policy which supports the whole industry. And while our proposals are for England only, I look forward to working with the Farming unions, Welsh Government and stakeholders to best serve our farmers here as they develop a scheme specific to Wales. The UK will maintain environmental protections, safeguard animal welfare and support the production of high quality food, the Prime Minister will say tomorrow as she meets farmers and food producers at the Royal Welsh Show in Llanelwedd, Powys.Theresa May will set out the government’s plans for a post-Brexit farming policy which works for farmers and food producers, while improving the environment, by replacing the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy – which awards subsidies based on the amount of land farmed – with a new system of public money for public goods.In a roundtable with farmers and agricultural organisations including the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, Farmers Union Wales, NFU Cymru and the CLA, the Prime Minister will also reiterate her commitment to maintaining current funding levels until the end of this Parliament to ensure farmers have the certainty they need to plan for their business.Prime Minister Theresa May said:last_img read more

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires – / 50 The Arizona Cardinals’ anemic performance on offense in Saturday’s 27-16 NFC wild-card playoff loss at the Carolina Panthers had many fans and experts wondering: Why didn’t coach Bruce Arians replace struggling quarterback Ryan Lindley with rookie Logan Thomas?With a couple days to reflect on the loss, Arians stood by the decision to leave the 6-foot-6, 250-pound Thomas on the sideline in favor of Lindley, who the Cards cut in the preseason.

It’s the knowledge of the game and playing the position that he’s still learning,” Arians told Bickley and Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Monday. “He came out of three different offenses in college, so he’s learning (a new) offense.”Thomas, the Cardinals’ 2014 fourth-round draft pick out of Virginia Tech, threw just nine passes in the regular season, completing one of them: a short pass to tailback Andre Ellington that turned into an 81-yard touchdown in an Oct. 5 loss at the Denver Broncos.
