Subsidy cut for hemp and flax

YET again a developing industry has been thwarted by the Common Agricultural Policy – a policy that is having little
affect on over-production.

Hemp and oilseed produce fuel oil which is 80% less of a pollutant than
fossile fuels.

In a country where asthma has increased, surely the
developement of such crops should be encouraged.

The list of other products
produced from these crops is to long to list.
