Rural and Environment
31st January 2020 by Fergus Ewing MSP
The EU has been a good friend to rural Scotland.
For the whole of the Scottish Parliament’s lifetime, the rural economy has benefitted from our membership.
Over the years, our engagement with it has allowed Scotland to push our case on everything from agriculture and fisheries policy reform, to fishing quotas and forestry. Scotland has had a voice in the room – a room we will no longer be able to enter.
