Statement by Honourable Edison C James

Honourable edison james, the political leader of the united workers party has responded to the statement by minister for agriculture, honourable matthew walters that there is an over production of certain root crops.

 

Mr. James says that this is a demonstration of the ministers misconception of the essentials of proper planning for production and marketing of agricultural crops.

 

He refers to the empty boast by walters as a public confession that walters and his ministry has failed the agricultural sector as over production means that the farmer is unable to sell his products and it is their role to link production volumes and markets to avoid this.

 

James says that the uwp is committed to adopt a policy in which farmers will be assisted to produce their crops under contractual arrangements which include ensuring a secure market and direct purchase of the crops when necessary.
