MP meets local farmers’ representatives

26th March 2018

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown recently met with the President of the Country Land and Business Association, Tim Breitmeyer and the Cirencester and Tetbury NFU branches.

He said:
“As the representative of such an agricultural constituency it is vital that I listen to the concerns of farmers as frequently as possible. Many important issues were raised including seasonal agricultural workers post-Brexit; rural crime and policing; Defra's preparedness following Brexit and the continuation of the badger cull and the Godfray Report. Farmers are rightly concerned about the administrative problems surrounding the Countryside Stewardship Scheme. Many participants have not received payments dating back to 2015, this is unacceptable and as a result I have tabled a Parliamentary Question to find out why this has happened and when they will be paid.”

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.

WHAT CAN AN MP DO FOR ME?

Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
