Louth and Horncastle MP Victoria Atkins met NFU President Meurig Raymond to highlight the importance of working together to support British farming.

Mrs Atkins was part of a group of MPs attending the meeting to discuss agricultural issues with the NFU leader.

It followed a meeting she had with Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Liz Truss and local farmers at Partney in March.

Mrs Atkins said: “I was pleased to meet the National Farmers Union (NFU) and its President, Meurig Raymond, again. I wholeheartedly support the work that the NFU undertake in supporting farmers and the rural way of life which is so important to us here in Lincolnshire.

“The agricultural sector is vital to Lincolnshire’s – and Britain’s - economy, landscape, health and security. I look forward to being a strong voice for our local farmers in Westminster.”
