Susan Elan Jones MP has tabled several questions to the Government on the subject of the environment, research and our nation’s food security.
This week, MPs will scrutinise the Government’s EU Withdrawal Bill, which aims to adapt EU legislation into UK law after Brexit.
High on the list of priorities for many are the laws that protect our environment and consider both our food security and research needs.
The Clwyd South MP recently stated that she receives many emails and letters from concerned constituents about these issues.
Susan Elan Jones MP, who has posed written questions to Jo Johnston MP, Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation to answer, said: “I believe it is vital that the UK Government does more to consider environmental concerns and our country’s food security and research needs. This is especially so at this time of Brexit confusion.”
More than a quarter of the food we consume in the UK is imported from the EU. Further to this, there has reportedly been a steady decline in national self-sufficiency with regard to food production over the past two decades.
