Tim Farron re-elected as chair of All Party Parliamentary Group on Hill Farming
8:00am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
WESTMORLAND and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron has been re-elected chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Hill Farming.
Last year, National Farmer's Union (NFU) president Peter Kendall said: "Many of my members, especially in Tim's back yard in the North West, recognise him as a positive force for farming, keeping our issues high up the political agenda and never losing sight of the vital contribution food and farming make to our economy."
Celebrating the news, Mr Farron said: "I have always worked hard to listen to our local farming community, which is an integral part of the tradition and beautiful environment of the Lake District.
"I will spend the next year fighting hard for our farming and rural communities and making sure they get the fair deal they deserve."
