Sue Hayman MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and Neil Parish MP, Chair, House of Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee

This conference focuses on the future of the UK agriculture sector and will be an opportunity for stakeholders to engage with policymakers on key issues at a pivotal point in the Brexit process.

As the agenda includes discussion on farming and supporting farmers during the agricultural transition period, as well as possible new approaches to regulating farming, we thought this may be of interest.
