For the first time ever all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), of which there are 73 in the UK, will vote on the future of the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP). This vote is currently expected on 13 March.
The Wildlife Trusts have been working with other organisations across Europe urging MEPs to press for reform of the CAP so that it supports good practices that will protect and restore nature and produce healthy food sustainably for future generations.
An e-action website has being launched to enable members of the public to send a message to their MEP prior to the vote.
Please follow this link http://uk.farmingfornature.eu for more information and to urge your MEP to vote for a greener agricultural policy that would benefit us all.
