Matheson calls for farming costs to be shared as Ukraine war increases pressure

In a Westminster Hall speech, Christian Matheson called for costs to be shared “across the sector” as farming costs increase following the Ukraine war.

On global food supply, Matheson warned that “when British farmers suffer, so does the rest of the world”.

The Labour MP paid tribute to the farmers who work all year and told MPs that with the right support, “the future could be so positive”.
