Anthony spoke last week in a Westminster Hall debate on food security. Watch Anthony's full speech, where he highlighted the need for an emphasis to be placed on food productivity, and the importance of supporting our local food producers.
Food security is a matter of increasing importance. We have already legislated to ensure that the Secretary of State for Farming reports to the House of Commons on Food security, but we must now reassure farmers that we are not just supporting them to enhance biodiversity but also produce food.
We have the space on land and sea to do so and we should make use of it!
