Warwick Lightfoot argues for agriculture policy reform on Farming Today

Feb 9, 2018

Policy Exchange’s Director of Economics & Social Policy Warwick Lightfoot – former Special Adviser to three Chancellors – appeared on the BBC to argue the case for reform of agriculture policy as Britain leaves the EU. Warwick pressed that farm policy is not currently aimed at supporting consumers and this should be reviewed as the UK moves away from the Common Agricultural Policy.

In Policy Exchange’s August 2017 report Farming Tomorrow, Warwick argued that the UK should unilaterally remove tariffs on food to cut prices for consumers, and that a British agriculture policy should be focused on delivering public goods – not on subsidising large landowners.
