|Content Type||Policy-making, Report|
The United Kingdom House of Lords Select Committee on the European Union: Energy and Environment Sub-Committee published a report Brexit: agriculture in May 2017. The report investigated the implications of Brexit for UK agriculture and food, particularly the implications of leaving the EU's Common Agriculture Policy and the Single Market.
Repatriating agricultural policy-making to the UK will also require careful consideration of the needs of the industry, future trade agreements and the devolution settlements.
These changes will affect an industry which by its very nature must make long-term business decisions. A transitional period is needed to allow farmers to survive and prosper post-Brexit.
Key issues included:
Withdrawing from the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)
Future trade in agri-food products
Access to labour
