Unions join forces to hold hustings in Vale of Clwyd

Wales’ two farming Unions - NFU Cymru and the Farmers’ Union of Wales -  have come together in Denbigh and Flintshire to ensure that their membership has the opportunity to quiz the general election hopefuls in an agricultural husting event. 

The details for the events are as follows: 

Llysfasi College, Lecture theatre, Ruthin Road, Llysfasi, Ruthin LL15 2LB - Monday 9 December at 7.30 pm

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.”
