MP's Column

This morning I met with a couple of people from the dairy industry. The price paid to many farmers for their milk remains considerably less than the cost of production. Simply speaking, dairy farmers need 5p extra per pint of milk and 50p extra per kg of cheese. This would secure our dairy industry. We also need to insist on clear labelling so that we know that we are buying British dairy products.

My drop-in surgeries continued today at Helston, St Erth, Newlyn and St Just.

Housing, the A30, social care support for new businesses and road safety were among the issues raised. Thank you to you all once again for taking time to drop-in.
