The re-design and creation of a new rural policy and legal framework for rural Wales will be the focus for discussion at the Agricultural Law Association’s first event in the Senedd next week.
A variety of rural organisations, rural professionals and farmers will come together at the event, on Tuesday 13 June, with Assembly Members to discuss how collectively they can work together to assist with the creation of future farming and environmental policies and legal framework post Brexit.
Mike Holland, Consultant and Adviser for the Agricultural Law Association, said, “We are currently facing the unique opportunity of re-designing and creating a new rural policy. The Association looks forward to working with other rural organisations and Assembly Members to lend their expertise to this important process. This is why we have instigated next week’s event in the Senedd.”
For more than 40 years the Agricultural Law Association (ALA) has been the UK’s largest inter-professional organisation devoted to the law and business of the countryside. The ALA focus on the law in a non-partisan, apolitical way in order to promote its knowledge, understanding and development among those who advise rural businesses.
Nerys Llewelyn Jones, Agri Advisor’s Managing Partner and Regional Co-ordinator for the ALA in Wales said, “It is clear that the farming industry in Wales needs a long-term plan for any future agricultural policy. This is an opportunity not to be missed. The uncertainty which the industry currently faces makes it difficult for informed business decisions to be taken. We look forward to holding discussions with Welsh Assembly members during the event in the Senedd as our members are keen to facilitate the development and implementation of the detailed policy and legislation which will be required going forward.”
