This is what I said to @Janet Hughes Defra on a previous thread of Clives.She didn't come back to me.The more environmental schemes we do in the UK will result in more of our food production being exported to countries around the World,This is then flown and shipped to the UK creating massive emissions. Why not concentrate on producing as much food in the UK as we can but in a sustainable way.Surely this is better for the climate.I hope @Janet Hughes Defra will read it.
I am sure most of us connected with agriculture entirely agree with what Jeremy has written. Very sad that those in high places will not read it or if they do it will not suit the Governments agenda on the future of Uk agriculture and food supplies.
What is so serious is it is just common sense that as a large island we need to be as self sufficient in food as possible.
