Both farming unions and the local YFCs have come together in North Wales to ensure that their membership has the opportunity to quiz the general election hopefuls in a series of four agricultural husting events in the area.
NFU Cymru, the Farmers' Union of Wales (FUW) and the Young Farmers Federations have worked together to arrange electoral hustings for Ynys Môn, Arfon, Meirionnydd Dwyfor and Aberconwy constituencies, inviting all candidates to participate.
The details of the events are as follows:
Arfon – Wednesday 27th November at Caeathro Village Hall, Caeathro at 7.30pm;
Ynys Môn - Tuesday 3rd of December 2019 at 5:30pm at Cartio Môn, Bodedern;
Aberconwy – Wednesday 4th of December 2019 at 7:30pm at Elwy Room, Glasdir Centre, Llanrwst;
Meirionnydd Dwyfor – Thursday 5th of December 2019 at 7:30pm at Porthmadog Football Club.
In a joint statement, the organisations noted: “In a period of political uncertainty, where our future trading relationship with the European Union remains unclear, this is an important opportunity for every farmer to quiz their prospective member of parliament on how they view the way forward.
“With much of the debate centred on national and international issues, these events are also an opportunity for our farming members to engage with the candidates about some of the more local issues that affect their livelihood and community.
“We would encourage members of the farming community to take up this opportunity to pose questions to those that seek to represent them in the next parliament at Westminster.”
