Prime Minister Theresa May has announced a snap general election for 8 June.

CLA Director General Helen Woolley said: “In light of the Prime Minister’s decision to call a general election we welcome the opportunity to get out and engage with candidates about the future of the countryside and ensure the rural voice is heard.

“The CLA will work throughout the campaign to ensure MPs understand that the future of the rural economy must be a national priority through Brexit and beyond.”
