Letter from the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Islands to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Rt Hon George Eustice MP
Secretary of State for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs
2 Marsham Street
Like many others in the industry, I was pleasantly surprised to hear the Prime Minister’s comments earlier this week that “we are going to get from the United States now a lifting of… the ban on British lamb”. Such a development would of course be welcome.
However details of what has been agreed are in short supply. I would be grateful if your department could provide us with chapter and verse on the agreement with the US authorities and when the lifting of the ban will take effect.
I am copying this letter to Lesley Griffiths MS and Edwin Poots MLA.
