“Greg Backs Support for Pig Industry”

Greg has welcomed the announcement of new government support for the pig industry, in the wake of a supply chain crisis which has threatened the livelihoods of pig farmers across the country. 

The government has announced that to ease the crisis caused by a shortage of abattoir workers, 800 temporary visas will be given to overseas slaughtermen to allow them to deal with the backlog.

The move follows urgent discussions between Sir Greg and other concerned MPs with Government Ministers. 

Sir Greg said: “I am pleased that the government has now taken action to tackle this crisis. It is a very significant step that will go a long way in addressing the problem.
