Fair Trade For British Farming

EDM number 622 in 2007-08, proposed by Roger Williams on 18/12/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Agriculture, Farmers, Food, Incomes and poverty, International trade and Service industries.

That this House congratulates the Farmers' Guardian, Country Living Magazine and Waitrose on their successful campaign, Fair Trade for British Farming, and for the efforts of the campaign to promote a fair and sustainable price for the high quality food produced by British farmers; notes that most British consumers wrongly believe that the principles of fair trade are applied to British agriculture; acknowledges that over the last 10 years British farmers' income has fallen whilst that of major retailers has increased; recognises the important contribution British farming makes to the food supply, protecting the countryside, rural employment and combating climate change; further notes the recent Office of Fair Trading probe that uncovered price fixing by supermarkets; and calls on the Government to ensure that the Supermarket Code has real teeth and that a supermarket ombudsman is introduced.

This motion has been signed by a total of 52 MPs.
