East Midlands: MEPs pledge support for farming

East Midlands MEPs Emma McClarkin and Andrew Lewer were among Conservative MEPs who this week put their names to a charter pledging support for British farming.

The two MEPs signed a five-point pledge committing support for UK agriculture and backing British growers in producing healthy, sustainable food.

Miss McClarkin said: “I’ve always been a big supporter of farming in the East Midlands, so I’m delighted to be able to give my support and promise to keep fighting for British farmers. The pledge sets out a clear vision of a fair deal for farming.”
