Laura Smith MP - farming

Crewe & Nantwich MP Laura Smith MP has thrown her support behind the Back British Farming Day in Westminster.

Farmers play a key role in producing food and caring for the countryside, and employ thousands across Cheshire.

The National Farmers’ Union (NFU) provided MPs with a Back British Farming wheat-pin badge to display their support for the sector during Brexit negotiations and beyond leaving the EU.

Laura Smith MP said: “I am immensely proud to wear the Back British Farming pin badge in support of a sector that is so valuable to the country.

“Our farmers play a unique role in securing a plentiful supply of fabulous British food, looking after our iconic countryside and sustaining a dynamic rural economy.

“The decisions made in Parliament over the coming months are critical to the future of British food production.

“As one of the sectors that will be most affected by Britain’s departure from the EU, it is important that we as politicians create the right regulatory environment to ensure our farmers can continue to provide safe and affordable food for the nation.

“Food production is a vital part of everyday life and impacts on us all.

“I would encourage all MPs and members of the public to get behind this important campaign and Back British Farming.”

Farming is the bedrock of the UK’s largest manufacturing sector – food and drink – which contributes more than £110 billion to the economy and employs 3.8 million people.
