Union roadshow is to arrive in Oban
NFU Scotland is taking to the road as it seeks the views of its members on what a new agricultural policy for Scotland should include.
The 13-date Future Agricultural Policy for Scotland roadshow, which visits Oban restaurant and bar Cuan Mor at 7pm on November 23, will focus on engaging with members as the union builds on its Steps to Change – A New Agricultural Policy for Scotland document launched in late March. There will be a member of the policy team, regional team and presidential team at the meeting.
Andrew McCornick, president of NFUS, said: ‘Scotland’s agriculture policy landscape is shifting, and major influences such as the UK Government’s Agriculture Bill and the Scottish Government’s Stability and Simplicity proposals could have significant implications for every farm and croft in Scotland. The union’s principles and priorities for financial stability, productivity gains and environmental delivery must chime with needs of all of its members.’
