Because Molly represents a region with many rural communities and where farming is of great significance, she is a member of Agriculture Committee. Greens believe that farming has a special role and should be supported rather than being left to rampant market competition.
Molly recently commissioned two reports on agriculture post-Brexit which propose ideas on how we can ensure that our small farmers and rural communities are well supported when we leave the EU.
Greens believe we need to move away from the industrialised and intensive farming systems that dominate the EU today. For several years the Green Group has been running a food campaign to build up the pressure for farming that serves the interests of communities rather than corporations and to ensure safe, healthy, and properly labelled food for consumers.
