“Scottish agriculture is in a very different situation than English agriculture. We’ve got 85% Less Favoured Areas, so if we want to support farming in Scotland we need help and support to maintain hill farms and all the rest. England are totally opposed to subsidy, and they’re wanting to change the way farming is managed… At the moment at the negotiating table [in Brussels] we’re being represented by people who don’t understand how food is being produced in Scotland, and what matters to us. The Westminster government have negotiated us to the bottom of the league table.”
