Food Standards And Farming Under Threat

"In Scotland where grass fed cattle produce the finest of beef it would have been expected that MPs representing farming constituencies made sure that the interests of the industry came first – way above party politics. Unfortunately this did not happen. Tory MPs representing Scottish Constituencies voted with the Government with the result that lower standards of food will be allowed to be sold in our shops. These products will be cheaper making it extremely difficult, impossible really, for quality Scottish food to compete. A trade deal with the US will flood our market with food the EU would not have permitted due to the chemicals it contains."
