Stevenson's Manifesto Chat Over "Fly-Cup & Fine Piece" With NE Farmers

Banff & Buchan SNP candidate Stewart Stevenson will highlight the Scottish National Party's commitments to the agriculture industry at a gathering at Meikle Toux Farm, Cornhill, Banffshire AB45 2XB on Tuesday 24 April at 3.00pm.

In keeping with North-east tradition, as the event takes place at 3.00pm (flytime), those attending will be offered "a fly-cup and fine piece".

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

"It's time for a Government who will give rural Scotland the priority it deserves. The needs of agriculture and the countryside have slipped off the agenda of the current Liberal/Labour administration.

"The SNP stands full-square behind Scottish farming which is why we want to see the industry reinvigorated with a support scheme for new entrants, similar to that which has proved so successful in Northern Ireland.

"We also want to rein in the bureaucracy of agencies like SEPA which employ more and more staff and seem to fund this expansion through ever-increasing burdens on farmers.

"These are just two of the actions which Government can take to support Scottish farming and which is why I am proud to stand on a manifesto which offers the industry that support."
