Welsh Conservatives have today urged Welsh farmers to respond to the Welsh Governmentâ€™s â€œBrexit and Our Landâ€� consultation.
The consultation includes detailed productivity and environment measures â€“ but NFU Cymru have expressed concern that it appears to suggest volatility measures are not required.
Shadow rural affairs spokesperson Andrew RT Davies said:
â€œWhile I welcome the productivity and environment measures included in the consultation â€“ the lack of measures to tackle volatility is a regrettable and glaring omission â€“ which the Welsh Government must address.
â€œIn launching this consultation now â€“ the Welsh Government have once again shown they are behind the curve.
â€œThe UK Government are already legislating in this area â€“ with a bill coming before Parliament before the summer recess â€“ which has the potential to be as important as the Agricultural Bill of 1947.
â€œIt is sadly the case that successive Welsh Governments have not lived up to their ambitions for the rural economy in Wales â€“ with much of the processing sector in meat and dairy moving to other parts of the UK.â€�
