UFU meet virtually with Prime Minister
Wednesday, 22 February, 2023
The Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU) alongside members of the Northern Ireland (NI) Business Brexit Working Group, have engaged in an online discussion with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, regarding the NI Protocol.
UFU president David Brown said, “The Prime Minister showed a strong understanding of the concerns surrounding the NI Protocol during our virtual discussions and was very well informed. We took the opportunity to highlight our concerns regarding NI’s agriculture industry. This includes the need for access to both the EU single market and Britain, ensuring no divergence, as well as addressing issues around animal and plant health rules, and the need for a SPS veterinary agreement. It is now important that a durable and workable solution is found.”
