The system of agricultural subsidies inherent in the European Union’s Common Agricultural policy promotes inefficiency, waste and higher food prices. They also hinder the development of third world economies making it virtually impossible for these countries to export agricultural products to the EU.
The Peoples Party will:
- abolish subsidies and establish measures to compensate for the loss of agricultural subsidies
- encourage farmers to concentrate on the production of high quality, wholesome and health promoting foodstuffs
- ban non UK based fishing boats from UK waters
- encourage developing economies to export agricultural produce to the UK
