Speaking to the Country Landowners Association during the Royal Welsh Show today, Neil Hamilton, Leader of UKIP in the Assembly and Spokesman on Agriculture & Rural Affairs, said:

‘I have taken the Agriculture brief for myself because farming and food security is so vital to rural Wales. I am announcing today a UKIP initiative to create a tailor-made post Brexit agricultural policy for Wales. Let’s cut red tape, make a bonfire of unnecessary forms, direct subsidies to where they are most needed and protect the most vulnerable farms, especially those in the uplands.

Now that agricultural policy is to be repatriated from Brussels to the UK, each of the four British nations will have its own, individual regime. This is great news for Welsh farmers and a golden opportunity for those whose lives and livelihoods are most intimately affected to shape their own future.

UKIP is totally committed to protecting the interests of Welsh farmers and the countryside and I intend to lead the debate.

I call on everyone who is interested in the future prosperity of Welsh farming and farmers to come forward now with practical ideas to create a cost effective system of agricultural support and guidance in the wider interest of Welsh people.’
