CLA President Henry Robinson said: “The CLA Game Fair offers a vital platform for ministers to speak to the rural community and take on board key issues facing the countryside. It offers us a unique event at which to launch our own manifesto setting out our vision for countryside policies directly to the ministers and we look forward to hearing their response. The debates, which are sure to be enjoyable, will also provide a real opportunity for people to question the ministers on their planned rural policies ahead of the election.”
