NFU Conference Speech

I am delighted to be able to speak to you at the conference of the organisation that for more than a century has been the voice of farming in this country. Farming has long played an important part in my life. My family have been farmers and tanners for generations. As the MP for North Shropshire for fifteen years, I’ve worked closely with my local NFU. I know firsthand the vital contribution that farming makes to our economy, environment and society.
