Back British Farmers

So demanded Victoria Atkins, Member of Parliament for Louth & Horncastle of the Prime Minister during PMQs in the Commons this week.

In the question to the Prime Minister Victoria said, “Last weekend, thousands of people from across Lincolnshire came to the Revesby races in my constituency to enjoy the racing and the delicious local food, including award-winning Lincolnshire sausages. As the Government prepare to strike new international trade deals, will my right hon. Friend ensure that the high standards we expect of our food producers and farmers will be met and maintained in these deals, and will this Government continue to back British farming?”.

Mrs May recalled tasting local sausages when she visited Louth & Horncastle during the General Election campaign and promised Victoria that she and the Government would continue to “Back British Farmers”.
