Speaking to the NFU today the leader of the Labour Party, Keir Starmer, promised to negotiate a better deal for farmers and farming communities.

“It’s been obvious for a long time that the Tories have given up on farmers,” Keir told the conference.

“Labour’s approach to trade will be very different – I can promise you that. We want to remove barriers to exporters, not put them up. We want to protect high British standards, not water them down.

“We are going to talk to our friends in the European Union, and we are going to seek a better trading relationship for British farming.”
