Mark Williams, Member of Parliament for Ceredigion, has questioned the Secretary of State for Wales over the importance of access to the single market for Wales’ red meat sector during Wales Question that took place today, Wednesday 30th November.
Mark said “The success of the Welsh red meat sector has meant that £225 million has been ploughed back into some of the most fragile rural communities in Wales.
“As 90% of Welsh red meat exports go into the European Union, there is real worry amongst many livestock farmers and others in the industry about the impact that a loss of access to the single market will have on the industry and many rural communities.
“The vote to leave the European Union and the Government’s response has meant that many of our important industries have been left with nothing but uncertainty. It is the responsibility of Government to provide stability and certainty for our businesses, industries and communities, and at this the Government is failing.”
