Beef export hope after SNFU meets Fischler

SCOTTISH National Farmers Union chiefs returned from Brussels in an upbeat mood after presenting European agriculture minister Franz Fischler with a hit-list of problems.

Union president George Lyon said there was now no excuse for not putting British beef from Scotland back on the world market.

He said the commissioner gave a clear commitment there would be no delay on his part. He described it as an important road back to normal trading conditions for the beef industry.
