Minister Michelle Gildernew MP MLA, formally met with new Irish Farmers’ Association (IFA) President, John Bryan.
Speaking after the meeting in the Slieve Donard Hotel, Newcastle, the Minister said: “We had a detailed discussion on issues of common interest north and south. This included the future of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) post 2013 and in particular the size of the CAP budget and the future basis for the Single Farm Payment Scheme. It was good to hear the IFA perspective on these issues as they will feature prominently in the forthcoming CAP debate.”
