CPA welcomes appointment of new Environment Secretary
Commenting on the appointment of the Rt Hon Theresa Villiers MP as Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, CPE CEO Sarah Mukherjee said;

"We welcome the new Secretary of State and look forward to supporting her as she faces up to the challenges of the future. We will need every tool in the box to provide safe, affordable food in the years to come, in the face of a growing global population and the threat of climate change. We must not forget that without crop protection, families in the UK would have to find another £786 a year for food. The crop protection sector is proud to support UK farmers who provide food for the nation every day to high standards, and we will be interested to see how the new government’s priorities develop."
