Soil Association comment on Agriculture Bill

In response to last night’s vote in the commons on the agriculture bill which saw bids to protect post-Brexit food standards rejected, Gareth Morgan, head of farming and land use policy at the Soil Association said;  “We are very disappointed the House of Commons has rejected key amendments on import standards, climate change and pesticides in the Agriculture Bill, that has been proposed by the House of Lords.

“Putting these protections into law is vital to protect us against trade deals that could lower food production standards, threaten our environmental and climate change commitments, and undercut British farmers.

“We must go further to uphold the UK’s high standards for food and farming. We urge the House of Lords to hold their ground and send the amendments back to the Commons again to give MPs who voted against these changes a chance to rethink.”
