Selected farmers will be driving their tractors and cars on a socially-distanced drive-slow demonstration around Parliament Square today.

The demonstration has been organised by volunteer activists, including Celebrity Masterchef-winner Emma Kennedy, who are concerned with British food standards and the impact of cheap food imports on farming,

It will take place from approximately 1.30pm (leaving New Covent Garden Market, Vauxhall, at 1pm to arrive in Parliament Square from approx. 1.30pm).

Darren Jones, Member of Parliament for Bristol North West said: "We need to see an Agriculture Bill that protects our legal guarantees on animal welfare and environmental standards in future trade talks.

"Ethical, sustainable and competitive farming is something that farmers, consumers and animal rights activists all agree on.

"I hope that the Government listens to this shared call on Wednesday and places food security, animal welfare and net-zero targets as central to our agricultural strategy.”

This demo is the inaugural event of Save British Farming, who is planning a summer of activities.
