The implications of 'Brexit' for UK agriculture

The purpose of this report is not to recommend how anyone should vote in the referendum on continued British membership of the EU.  Such a decision would involve considerations that go beyond agriculture and the food chain. However, those involved in agriculture need to be better informed about the consequences for them of a British exit. This report seeks to identify issues that need to be clarified in the referendum debate. It seeks to explore the policy options that would be available in the event of a British exit.
