Standing up for local farmers

At the heart of the constituency is our farming community. I have;

  • Supported legislation to deter hare coursing
  • Worked with Essex Police to implement local initiatives to tackle rural crime
  • Hosted events and roundtables with the National Farmers Union, Rural Payments Agency and farmers to discuss the impact of Government policy on the farming community
  • Backed the Government's new package of support to farming businesses, improve food security and protect the British agricultural sector
