    Janet Hughes DEFRA Missing in action?

    Don’t sign up to anything….you can plough up part of the 2m that was acquired from us as well! Unless they come at us with some legislation that we had no idea we had agreed to on signing agreements. That can’t happen…or can it?

    Janet Hughes DEFRA Missing in action?

    I have been asking questions with an “if not ,why not” enquiry for two years . It seems to result in the original question not being answered. I suppose that it would expose the spurious logic behind a lot of these schemes and open them up to more ridicule. I hope you have better luck with...

    June 2022 SFI standards and payment rates

    I am so pleased that all this is a result of co-design and after prolonged consultation. Lessons were learned from previous schemes. Those two sentences will be used to justify this shambles for years to come.The waste of resources involved in all this is truly disgraceful.

The way that supplies were “only available for a few days” was clever. I do think the Competition and Markets Authority should have shown an interest...

    Loss adjusters

    You can also ask to have a different firm to deal with. I would never have Cunningham Lindsey anywhere near my place. Just checked, and they were taken over in 2017! Now owned by Sedgwick. They will never be here in any of their guises.

    SFI pilot

    I believe the total staff numbers in DEFRA , RPA and other agric related quangos is approaching the number of active farmers!! I asked the question to my MP after Foot and Mouth…and he came up with figure for the UK which was less than that given for Wales alone, on the same day in a Welsh Ag...

    SFI pilot

    A lot of questions were not answered. I asked if that would be due to a lack of staff… that wasn’t answered. I asked …if not why not…that wasn’t answered. I would really like to know how much this has cost to date ….no answer .But we are told this is the collaborative approach and that the end...

    Veg oil.....a fuel alternative?

    I knew of a brand new Navara, 55 reg,common rail Diesel engine, did about 70,000miles faultlessly on new ,cold-pressed ,veg oil. Unfortunately it was scrapped because of rotten chassis.
