NFU Scotland is urging its membership to complete a survey to assess the confidence of Scotland’s farmers and crofters in the context of Brexit.
The results of the survey, entitled Brexit and Business Confidence, will be released on Thursday June 20, the first day of the 2019 Royal Highland Show at Ingliston, near Edinburgh. That date marks almost three years since the referendum on membership of the European Union on June 23, 2016.
The union’s reasons for running this survey are two-fold: first, to get a clear picture of what confidence is like within the agricultural industry, so it can identify how best to support its growing membership; and to give the union a strong, clear mandate on lobbying priorities as it continues to negotiate with politicians, governments and decision-makers on Brexit and a new agricultural policy for Scotland in the future.
All members will receive a printed copy of the three-page survey with the June edition of the membership magazine, the Scottish Farming Leader, to be completed and mailed back in the pre-paid envelope provided by Friday, June 14.
The Brexit member confidence survey is also available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/NFUSBrexitConfidence before Monday June 17.
