Brexit will be positive for our farmers – Parkhill

1 Mins read

UKIP candidate for East Londonderry, Steven Parkhill, claims Brexit will be positive for our farmers.

“It’s evidently clear that our farmers would be much better off if we left the bureaucratic EU, and ensure that our farming industry receives the targeted support it needs.

Research shows that in 2015, the UK paid £5.5 billion towards the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), but only received £2.9 billion back; if we vote to leave we would be able to spend the full £5.5billion, if not invest more on our agriculture sector.

The European Unions, CAP is not an ideal policy for our British farmers. It is extremely bureaucratic. Our farmers often find themselves facing fines and sanctions for failing to comply with over burdensome and complex rules made by unelected EU officials who have a serious lack of knowledge on the UK’s farming industry.

In February, David McNarry MLA, UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland, exposed the level of fines imposed by the EU on DARD as £47 million.

Additionally a Brexit has the potential to open up new emerging markets for our farmers, as opposed to being shackled to the declining EU. Brexit would give us the ability to strike our own deals with these emerging markets, enabling our farmers to generate more profits from their produce.

The UK has a great future beyond the EU; this great future can only be delivered by Voting Leave on 23rd June. “
