Farming for public benefits

Simplify the bureaucracy around farming (i.e., reduce it, e.g., passports, tags, micro-chips etc.) by replacing with a farming licence.  Benefits would include:  less paperwork, benchmarked standards, licence reflecting the farm business's operations in return for public subsidy, i.e., reflecting the fact that farming financed by public subsidy is effectively a public service in everything but name.

Why the contribution is important

A lot more is demanded of farming today than in days of yore and many farm businesses are not economic without public subsidy.  There are, therefore paid to provide a public service but benchmarking and standards could be simplified and made more transparent by a licence to operate.  This might be especially true because farming is asked to produce more public benefits, the quality of which needs to be guaranteed.

    Your ideas and priorities are now being used to help the Committee write its report on how we can develop principles to underpin a new agriculture and rural development policy for Wales. For more information, please do contact me @ celyn.cooper@assembly.wales. I’ll also make sure to update the pages and this thread to keep you updated as this progresses.
