Parliamentary inquiry on Brexit and agriculture announced

Submissions are invited to a short inquiry on the likely impacts of Brexit on agriculture, to be conducted by the House of Lords EU, Energy and Environment Sub-Committee.
 

The inquiry will  seek to highlight the challenges the Government will face when disentangling UK farming from the EU, and the opportunities that arise for agriculture and food from withdrawal.
 
The inquiry will begin with a public meeting on Wednesday 25 January, at which academics and industry experts will give evidence on agriculture and Brexit. Subsequent evidence sessions will focus on trade, regulation, subsidy, labour, the provision of 'public goods' and food security.
 
There is no formal call for evidence for this inquiry,  but any individual or organisation wishing to make a written submission should contact the clerk to the Committee, Celia Stenderup-Petersen, at stenderuppetersenc@parliament.uk. Find more details here.
