Weekly Economics Podcast: What’s Brexit done to fishing and farming?

Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by NEF Associate Fellow, Chris Williams

We were supposed to have cast off the shackles of EU rules around farming and fishing. Brexit was sold as a sea of opportunity’. And yet, tonnes of British meat have been left rotting at European ports, while Scottish fishers have had to make a 72-hour round trip to land their catch in Denmark.

The PM has said these are just teething problems”. But are they really? What’s it been like for UK fishers and farmers since we left the EU? And is there a chance we can use Brexit to make our food system better?

In this episode, Ayeisha is joined by Chris Williams, NEF Associate Fellow.
