Concerns of Local Farmers are Being Ignored by Government Ministers' says Ruffley

Sunday, 25 May, 2003

David Ruffley has joined over 40 colleagues in the House of Commons signing a Motion highlighting Agriculture Ministers' slow actions in addressing concerns about the disposal of fallen stock.

David said, ' Many livestock farmers in my constituency have informed me that Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Ministers have failed to promote clear guidelines for farmers. I also recently raised this point with Ministers in the House of Commons. Ministers must take immediate action to prevent further problems for Britain's farmers.'
