Beverley and Holderness MP, Graham Stuart, welcomed representatives from the National Farmers Union in his constituency to the Houses of Parliament for a guided tour and a Question and Answer session.
The National Farmers Union represents over 46,000 farming and growing businesses and aims to champion British agriculture and campaign for a stable and sustainable future for the farming industry.
During their visit, the representatives were given a tour of the Houses of Parliament to give them the opportunity to learn more about how it operates and its historical significance. Following the completion of their tour, the representatives met with members of Graham’s team and raised their concerns about the industry and potential solutions for how to address them.
Following their visit Graham said: “I was pleased to be able to invite representatives from the National Farmers Union branch in Beverley and Holderness to the Houses of Parliament for a tour and Question and Answer session. I will take onboard the important points that they raised during the meeting and I look forward to continuing my work with them in the future.”
After visiting the Houses of Parliament Angela Kirkwood, the County Chairman of the NFU, commented: “It was great to be able to visit the Houses of Parliament and to learn more about its vast and interesting history. Farming representatives from the Holderness area were pleased to have the opportunity to raise concerns and potential solutions with Graham’s team and I look forward to working with them to ensure the farming industry receives the support it requires."
