NEWS FROM LABOUR: Luke Pollard responds to the vote on the Agriculture Bill this evening in the House of Commons

Luke Pollard MP, Labour’s Shadow Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary, responding to the vote on the Agriculture Bill this evening in the House of Commons, said:

 

“The Conservatives have again broken their promise to British farmers and the public.

 

“No one wants lower quality food on our plates, but there is an increasing risk that this could happen because the Prime Minister is refusing to show leadership.

 

“Labour will always back British farmers and it is a disgrace that the Tories won’t do the same.”
