Today (6 December) Gwynedd Plaid Cymru Councillors will call for the support of the full Council in urging the Welsh Labour Government to secure a stable environment for farm businesses after Brexit.
“Here in Gwynedd, small family farms are a cornerstone of the county’s rural communities,” said Councillor Paul Rowlinson, “and generations of our people have farmed the land and produced high quality food that is sold to the public.”
“Agriculture is an essential part of Gwynedd’s rural economy and supports many families in the county. Any changes in agriculture that result from Brexit are certain to have a direct impact on the local economy, our rural communities and the Welsh language,” explained Councillor Rowlinson, who will propose a motion asking for the support of the full Council in demanding that the Welsh Government provides stability for farming families in the county.
