Brexit panel to discuss effects on Midlands’ agricultural industry

This story is over

A panel of experts, including Lincoln-based Streets Chartered Accountants and Langleys Solicitors, will discuss how a soft or hard Brexit will affect the agricultural industry at this year’s Midlands Machinery Show.

Held at the Lady Eastwood Building at Newark Showground on Wednesday November 23, the special breakfast debate will hear from keynote speaker Roddy McLean, Director of Agriculture at NatWest, as well as Paul White, Partner in Brown & Co’s agricultural business department, and Clare Slattery, Agricultural and Land-based Tax Specialist for Streets Chartered Accountants.

The panel will be chaired by Andrew Fearn, chairman and head of agriculture at Langleys Solicitors.

James Pinchbeck, Marketing Partner at Streets Chartered Accountants, said: “We feel that the agricultural industry will be most affected by Brexit.

“As a result we felt that a breakfast seminar before the start of the Midlands Machinery Show would be a great opportunity to give farmers and those in the industry the chance to hear about what will affect them following the trigger of Article 50 and how they should prepare.

“As a Midlands based accountancy practice, the firm has looked after the interests of farming families for many generations along with those involved in agriculture and its allied industries.

“This special breakfast discussion will look at the opportunities and threats facing British agriculture, not least post Brexit.”
