Manx NFU considers Brexit impact

The Manx National Farmers Union has voiced fears that a UK exit from the EU would substantially impact the Isle of Man's agricultural trade routes.

Chairman Brian Brumby says the loss of free access to European markets would put producers such as Isle of Man Creamery, and farmers selling direct into Europe, at a disadvantage.

The Island's Protocol 3 agreement with the EU allows Island exporters to trade freely with all member states - but the agreement will fall if the  UK strikes out on its own in the referendum next week (23 June).

The Manx NFU says in the event of Brexit, Manx government support for the industry must keep pace with subsidy levels in Europe - to ensure local farmers remain competitive.

Mr Brumby says continued Tynwald support is essential.
