CPA welcomes new Environment Secretary
Commenting on the appointment of George Eustice MP as Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, CPA CEO Sarah Mukherjee said.

"I would like to congratulate the Secretary of State for his promotion and look forward to supporting him as he faces up to the challenge of providing safe, affordable food whilst minimising the impact on the environment and responding to the threat of climate change. Our exit from the EU provides a unique opportunity for UK farming to meet that challenge and lead the way in agricultural science, technology and innovation. An opportunity to design an agricultural policy that enables UK farmers to compete with the rest of the world by ensuring they have the tools and support they need to bring healthy, safe, affordable food to tables across the UK.

“As Farming Minister, with his knowledge and farming background, Mr Eustice was a great advocate for sustainable productive agriculture, and I look forward to that continuing in his new role.”
