Future of Agricultural Policy
Chair - Joe Stanley, head of training and partnerships, GWCT Allerton Project
Agricultural policy is at a crossroads after the UK voted to come out of the European Union. Described as one the biggest opportunities of Brexit, the chance for the devolved nations to develop domestic agricultural policy to deliver public goods was hailed as a once in a lifetime opportunity.
But six years on, farmers across the UK are still not sure what a post-Brexit agricultural policy means for them. At this debate, experts from Defra, the Welsh Government, the NFU, the RSPB and Strutt and Parker will field questions from the floor and shine some light on what future agricultural policy will look like.
