Talk­son­rise in­rural­crime

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A Perthshire MP has made ru­ral is­sues a pri­or­ity as part of his sum­mer surgery tour.

Luke Graham MP has met with with lo­cal farm own­ers this week and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Na­tional Farm­ers Union at Til­lyrie Farm, Mil­nathort, to dis­cuss ru­ral crime, CAP pay­ments, dig­i­tal con­nec­tiv­ity and Brexit.

Mr Graham said: “It is es­sen­tial that the voices of ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties in South Perthshire and Kin­ross-shire are heard at the lo­cal and na­tional level, es­pe­cially in West­min­ster.

“There seems to be a dis­turb­ing in­crease in or­gan­ised ru­ral crime and I will be work­ing to help tackle the prob­lem.”
