“During the six years I have had the honour of serving as deputy president, Peter and I have worked extremely effectively as a team.
With important decisions over CAP reform and bovine TB due in the next couple of years, I believe I have the knowledge and enthusiasm to help deliver on these issues through the important working relationships that I have developed in government and the European Parliament.
I am proud of my track record and have demonstrated the passion and energy to help deliver a profitable and positive industry, producing a decent return on its capital.”
