Farmers deeply concerned about impact of Brexit – Hazzard

Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said farmers are deeply concerned about the impact of Brexit on their livelihoods.

The South Down MP said:

“Today I visited farmers and those involved in agriculture across South Down alongside Sinn Féin President Mary Lou Donald.

“It is clear there is widespread concern among the farming community over Brexit and the catastrophic impact it will have on the sector in the north.

“The reckless Brexit policy of the Tories and the DUP will drive many farmers, some of whom whose families have farmed land for generations, out of business.

“They don’t trust the British government to continue EU funding post Brexit and are genuinely concerned for their livelihoods.”
