DARD Minister in Brussels

Agriculture and Rural Development Minister Michelle O’Neill and our MEPs have been working hard to make sure that the needs of the region’s farmers are heard in Brussels.

On 1st September the Minister, along with a delegation of political and industry representatives, attended important meetings with EU Agriculture and Rural Development Commissioner Phil Hogan and senior officials from his Cabinet to push for extra assistance for the dairy sector.

Minister O’Neill was back in Brussels only a few days later for an extraordinary EU Agriculture Council on 7th September.

The full NI Executive press release is available here.
