NFU Cymru is inviting its members in Pembrokeshire to a county meeting to discuss the new proposals for the Welsh Government Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) set out within a consultation launched at the end of March.
Starting at 7.30pm, on Thursday, 21 May 2015, the meeting will be held at the Agriculture House, Winch Lane, Haverfordwest.
Simon Richards, Pembrokeshire NFU Cymru County Chairman, said, “The BPS will affect every farmer in Wales and this meeting is an opportunity to discuss your concerns and get some clarity on the Welsh Governments proposals. During the meeting we will go through the consultation paper with members, talking through the discussions that have taken place since the legal challenge and seek members’ views on the options that are now being consulted upon.
“We know that the future design of the Basic Payment Scheme is a contentious issue and our membership will have a range of views on the best way forward. This is completely understandable given that whatever proposal is eventually decided upon by Welsh Government can make a significant impact on the level of CAP support an individual farming business will receive in future. Therefore, I would urge our members to come along to our county meeting to find out more about the Welsh Government proposals and help shape NFU Cymru’s response to this consultation.”
The 12-week consultation, which can be found at http://gov.wales/consultations will close on Tuesday, 23 June 2015.
