Tim at Heaves FarmCommenting on the news that the Government are set to strengthen the Trade and Agriculture Commission to scrutinise future trade deals, South Lakes MP Tim Farron said: "This is welcome news and I want to pay tribute to the tireless campaigning of the NFU in forcing the Government's hand on this.

"However, I do remain concerned that the Departments for Trade and Agriculture had to be brought kicking and screaming to reach this point

"This does not fill me with hope about what will happen in future trade deals and so I will continue to fight for British farming and food standards to be put into law when the Agriculture Bill returns to the House of Commons this week."
