Local MP, Nadhim Zahawi, met with representatives of the NFU to discuss issues facing the farming community in Stratford-on-Avon, in particular; rural crime, food security, and access to seasonal labour.
“My colleagues at Defra and the Home Office are working hard to secure our long-term vision for the sector and rural communities.
“It is also essential the skills are there to drive British farming forwards, which is why we are introducing T Level qualifications in Animal Care and Management, as well as Agriculture, Land Management and Production. This is in conjunction with the important work being undertaken by the Food and Drink Sector Council to raise awareness of agriculture as a career path.”
