George Eustice – 2013 Comments on Assisting Farmers

The comments made by George Eustice, the then Minister for Farming, Food and Fisheries, on 13 November 2013.

The farming industry has always had to contend with risk but the harsh winter last year had a devastating impact on many farmers. As we enter winter it is essential we do all we can to support the industry in its efforts to prepare and plan to mitigate risks. The Met Office’s Get Ready for Winter webpage is an example of joint working to make our industry more resilient.
