From the uncertain future of subsidies post-Brexit to the ever-delayed 25 year food and farming plan, the agricultural sector faces huge uncertainties over the next few years. But with a strong Opposition and a weak minority government, there is clearly a significant opportunity for Labour to shape the future of farming for the better.

This event will assess the major challenges facing food and farming in the UK today, and consider what sort of future for farming Labour should be fighting for. Key topics include: the role of trade and trade agreements, the need for a policy that’s fair to all farmers, and public payments for public good.
