‘They are wrong’ – Environment Secretary accuses EU of making things up over Brexit trade dispute


In a speech at the National Farmers’ Union, Environment Secretary George Eustice said that farmers were now benefiting from increased confidence because of leaving the European Union, with profits up in many sectors and lamb and beef prices at ten-year highs.

He went on to list the many benefits he believed would follow from leaving the EU, pointing to the UK’s self-sufficiency in food production increasing for the first time since 2014.
