SNP MSP for Clydesdale Aileen Campbell next week, Monday 27th March, will host a Rural Q&A event for farmers and those involved with the rural economy in Clydesdale. The event will be headlined by Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy, Fergus Ewing, who will answer questions and issues of concern from the audience.
Commenting, Ms Campbell said;
“As the MSP for this rural constituency, I am always keen to hear the thoughts, concerns and suggestions from those working in our rural economy. I am therefore delighted to be welcoming Fergus Ewing to Lanark to speak directly with my constituents.
“I welcomed the support for the Scottish Government expressed by NFU Scotland last year and its commitment to supporting the work of our rural economy. The Scottish Government has been working hard to help farmers and the rural economy across Scotland. Our food and drink exports are at a record high and there is much to be positive about. There is also great challenge which is why this opportunity to engage with the government is so important."
