Letter Received, Explains Consequences of Milk Price Cuts
In the latest on the milk price cuts overseas, the UK is still struggling with dairy farmers to find a solution to the problem. A letter explaining the consequences of sustaining the cost of milk reached press today.
In a letter to The Daily Telegraph Ruth Bond, the chair of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes, and Shaun Spiers, the chief executive of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), warn that recent cuts in the price that farmers are paid for milk will have “disastrous repercussions for the character of our countryside and the rural economy”.
The letter came as an estimated 2,500 dairy farmers descended on Westminster yesterday to hold crisis talks with the Government on how to tackle the price cuts.
