Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

TO­MOR­ROW at the Devon County Show, the CLA will launch its cam­paign to push for con­tin­ued pub­lic fund­ing for the coun­try­side post­brexit. ‘The Bri­tish coun­try­side pro­vides us with a large pro­por­tion of the food we eat and the wa­ter we drink; it cleans the air we breathe and sus­tains a rich di­ver­sity of wildlife—fea­tures that bring ben­e­fits to ev­ery­one who lives in, works in or vis­its the coun­try­side,’ points out CLA Pres­i­dent Ross Mur­ray [Opin­ion, page 56].

‘But there is a risk once the UK leaves the EU. It’s vi­tal for Gov­ern­ment to treat farm­ing, the ru­ral econ­omy and our land­scapes as a pub­lic in­vest­ment pri­or­ity.’ The CLA will be tak­ing its ‘The Coun­try­side Mat­ters’ cam­paign around agri­cul­tural shows this sum­mer.
