North East Region to Host Unique Hustings Event for its Members

All the candidates standing in the three constituencies covering the key agricultural region of the North East have been invited to participate in a hustings event at Thainstone Mart, Inverurie on Friday 6 December at 2.30pm.

In a new format for NFU Scotland hustings, the 12 candidates standing for election in Banff & Buchan, West Aberdeenshire & Kincardine, and Gordon have been invited to meet and take questions from the audience of NFU Scotland members.   The candidates attending the event will be invited to outline their parties key agricultural and rural commitments, with an opportunity for attendees to put questions to the candidates on what they will do to support Scottish agriculture in the next parliament.

NFU Scotland has published its own ten-point manifesto, issued to all parliamentary candidates last week, which calls for support from the new UK Government in: ensuring the right outcomes for the sector from any Brexit deal; joint work on the climate emergency; recognising Scotland’s best practice in animal welfare; using the taxation system to support more opportunities within the sector; and improving the standards of food producers in the supply chain.
