Commenting on prime minister Boris Johnson’s pledge of a further £51.4 million for Scottish farmers, Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron said:
“This announcement is very good news for our region where agriculture is one of the most important sectors of the local economy. Following the £160m for Scottish farming in the Chancellor’s spending review earlier this week, it is encouraging to see UK Government ministers repeatedly prioritising support for our farmers and crofters."
“I am also pleased that the prime minister visited Peterhead fish market earlier today to underline support for the Scottish fishing industry which stands to benefit greatly when we deliver Brexit."
"It's clear the UK Government will continue to value our vital farming and fisheries sectors, in stark contrast to the SNP who have failed to pay farmers on time and are intent on dragging our fishing communities straight back into the hated Common Fisheries Policy.”
