George Eustice

CLA President Tim Breitmeyer said: “We are saddened to hear of George Eustice’s decision to resign as Farming Minister at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. He has held the position since 2015 and has maintained a strong voice on behalf of the farming industry during that time.

“His farming background and first-hand knowledge and experience have been invaluable in the many areas of his brief. The farming community has lost a key ally at this critical time for the industry, which faces significant uncertainty and change.”
