HUSH response to the DEFRA call for evidence on agriculture

26th January 2014

HUSH has responded to the Department of Environment's Farming and Rural Affairs [Defra] call for evidence on Agriculture. This document can be found in the Consultation/Report Documents section on this website, on the left hand side.

This is one of a series of consultations being run by Defra to assess the competence of the European Union to legislate. We previously responded to their Call for Evidence on Animal Health, Welfare and Food Safety on 27th February 2013. This also appears on this website in the Consultation/Report Documents section.

Whilst there is much criticism of the European Union, they have brought in some very good legislation in relation to food safety and the Environment, which has lead to greater protection of the consumer and public.

We believe that without our membership of the European Union, some of this legislation would not have been introduced. We also believe the Governments idea of "better regulation" is no regulation, which is to the detriment of the consumer and the public.
