CLA reacts to news that EU and Boris Johnson have reached agreement on deal to leave

17 October 2019

President of the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) Tim Breitmeyer said:

“News of a deal will be warmly welcomed by farmers and rural businesses, many of whom were fearing the consequences of a No Deal scenario. The proposed deal finally provides us with some certainty, that could in turn help unlock much needed investment to get the rural economy moving again.

"Opposition MPs, many of whom have argued against a hard Brexit, should think very carefully before voting this deal down. One gets the sense that it’s this deal or No Deal".
