Brian Pack is seeking further contributions to the online discussion on reducing red tape in farming and Scottish Land & Estates would strongly encourage members to get involved.
The online dialogue is a key part of Brian Pack’s wider review of farming bureaucracy and will allow farmers, land managers, the wider agricultural supply chain and anyone with an interest in farming to engage in constructive online discussions about how Scottish farming should be regulated in future.
This is a fantastic chance to air your views on red tape and get them picked up by Brian in his review – please use it. If farmers don’t utilise this opportunity the inadvertent message is that red tape and regulation is not too onerous, so if you have strong feelings about the regulation of farming please persevere even if you don’t like the online format.
The public dialogue website can be accessed at: http://www.farmregulation-doingbetter.org/
Douglas McAdam, Scottish Land & Estates CEO, said: “We would encourage all our members to get involved in this dialogue. Brian is to be commended for trialling innovative methods for engaging the farming and land management community and it is only by getting involved in the dialogue that those affected by red tape can have real and constructive input. We hope that this new approach is successful and that it provides Brian with some solutions that may help reduce the red tape burden in future”.
