Farming Unions to host General Election hustings in Monmouthshire

Both farming unions, NFU Cymru and the Farmers’ Union of Wales, have come together in Monmouthshire to ensure that their membership has the opportunity to quiz the prospective parliamentary candidates for the constituency at an upcoming General Election hustings. 

The hustings, which will take place on Wednesday 27 November at the Monmouthshire Livestock Centre at 3.30 pm, will give members the opportunity to hear from the candidates about their respective parties’ policies for agriculture. 

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.”
