Government package supports local agriculture, food and drink businesses

This week, the Government announced a ‘bounce back’ package of trade and investment measures to help support agriculture, food and drink businesses impacted by coronavirus.

The food and drinks industry employs four million people and is the UK’s largest manufacturing sector. 

Longbridge Statement

The news about the withdrawal of support from North Devon Council is disappointing. Lending my support originally was due to the assurances that the scheme could be withdrawn swiftly if traffic levels increased significantly, and that the initial trial would be a short one.
