Brexit News

The UK’s exit from the EU presents one of the biggest challenges in the history of the Union.

Trade, access to labour and support for the agricultural industry are the three key priorities that NFU Scotland has been strongly pushing with negotiators since the outcome of the vote in June 2016.

NFU Scotland considers it vital that the outcome of the Brexit negotiations give Scottish farmers, crofters and growers opportunities to profitably and sustainably grow their businesses so they can continue to underpin the rural economy, local communities and environmental gains.

Visit this page to keep up-to-date with what NFU Scotland is doing in relation to Brexit, and for the latest information and briefings.  Send any comments you have to brexit@nfus.org.uk  Brexit will bring change and we want to hear your views. 

 
The UK Government published a White Paper in February 2017 outlining its priorities for the Brexit negotiation. [link to pdf: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/589191/The_United_Kingdoms_exit_from_and_partnership_with_the_EU_Web.pdf
