Unaligned Dairy Farmers

EDM number 1142 in 2015-16, proposed by Corri Wilson on 24/02/2016.
Categorised under the topic of Farmers.

That this House recognises the important role dairy farmers play in supplying high quality dairy products and the benefits that dairy produce brings to providing a healthy, well-balanced diet; expresses concern at the significantly reduced price unaligned dairy farmers are being forced to accept for their milk on the open market; commends the investment in, and contribution to the British countryside, generations of unaligned farmers have made; notes the rise of factory farms and the pressure these place on smaller unaligned producers; acknowledges the inequity of distributing the European Aid Package by rate of production, effectively rewarding big producers at the expense of smaller ones; and calls on the Government to work with the supermarkets and the dairy farming industry to ensure that unaligned farmers receive a fair price for their milk and are not forced out of the market.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
