Dr Dan backs Suffolk's farmers at local NFU event

Dr Dan with fellow Suffolk MP Peter Aldous and guests at the NFU Parliamentary and Business Dinner (2)Agriculture is part of Suffolk’s DNA and Dan is a great supporter of our local farmers and food producers. Last week, he was the keynote speaker at a dinner organised by the Suffolk National Farmers’ Union, and he used this opportunity to highlight the work he has been doing for our local farmers and food industry in Suffolk.

Dan spoke of how he is supporting agriculture in Suffolk in his role as a Government Health Minister, by ensuring that farmers benefit from a new bursary milk scheme and through supplying more locally sourced food to hospitals. All hospitals should be providing high quality and nutritious food for their patients, which means backing our local farmers and food producers.

Dan was joined at the dinner by his fellow Suffolk MP Peter Aldous, along with new Suffolk Chief Constable Douglas Paxton, the Chief Executive of Suffolk County Council Deborah Cadman, Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore, Suffolk chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses Chris Soule, the chief executive of Suffolk Agricultural Association, Chris Bushby and Easton and Otley College Principal David Lawrence.

At the end of the dinner, Dan thanked the NFU for inviting him to speak and for all the work they do for local farmers in Suffolk. He looks forward to working with them on a number of issues in the weeks and months ahead.
