Irish Agriculture Minister must ‘introduce aid package for beef farmers’ over Brexit
The President of the Irish Farmers Association says beef farmers must receive aid for money lost because of Brexit.
Joe Healy said Agriculture Minister Michael Creed must introduce an “aid package for beef farmers“
“While all the talk on Brexit is around what may happen and contingency planning, incomes for beef farmers have already taken a major financial hit and they need an aid package.
“The Department already has all the information on their database and can readily identify the farmers involved.
“We have made repeated calls for the EU Commission and the Department of Agriculture to come forward with proposals on how they intend to support farmers through Brexit, but no detail has been forthcoming,”
