The National Farmers’ Union (NFU) has called for more information about protections for UK farmers in a new trade deal with Australia, amid fears the UK might face a potential flood of cheaper meat, and concerns about a lack of detail on animal welfare and environmental safeguards.
The British government said UK food standards would not be relaxed, but has so far not provided details on areas such as higher levels of antibiotics used in Australian meat.
We’d like to hear what British farmers think of this news, and what they believe such a trade deal could mean for their businesses.
