Motion text

That this House welcomes the National Farmers Union's Back British Farming Day on the 15 September 2021; recognises the key role farmers play in producing the food we eat and as stewards of our countryside; believes that farmers are key allies in tackling the climate and ecological emergencies; supports the introduction of a public money for public goods system for farm payments; further believes existing basic payments should continue in full until the new Environmental Land Management Scheme is fully rolled out; considers the Government's failure to protect UK standards on environmental protection and animal welfare to be deeply damaging to farmers; calls on the Government to protect those standards; and further calls for Parliament to be given the final say on any trade agreement.
