Sylw yn dilyn cyfarfod gyda'r Undebau Amaeth – 19 Chwefror

The Minister for Rural Affairs Lesley Griffiths said: “I meet with the farming unions regularly and I wanted to have a meeting as soon as possible after our Sustainable Farming Scheme roadshows and theirs had been completed. 

 “I’d like to thank them for joining me today, it was good to hear the feedback they had from their events. We will consider this in addition to the feedback we’ve noted from our events.

 “Many of the issues discussed were common with those we heard from the 3,200 farmers who’ve attended the Welsh Government events. 

 “I reiterated to them this is a genuine consultation.  It is still open, and I would continue to urge people to take part and give us their views. We will consider every individual response. 

“Once the consultation is over I will receive a detailed analysis of the responses, and as I’ve said before I would expect to make changes to the scheme as a result.

 “It is vitally important people take part in the consultation.  Please do find time to respond as your views matter.”
