Subsidy study

I AM presently conducting a report concerning subsidies and UK farmers.

The report will discuss whether or not farmers should be subsidised, citing both sides of the argument.

The report will cover:

  • The pros and cons of continuing subsidies;
  • If subsidies were to be removed, what different strategies could be proposed in their place?
  • Do the majority of UK farmers still want subsidising, or do they believe they can survive without it?
I would appreciate any suggestion or views you may hold, and any personal stories associated with this topic would also be welcome.
