UK: Pro-Brexit MP visits Lea Valley Growers

On Friday 19th January, Lea Valley Growers received a visit from Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith, Conservative MP and former minister, who is a vocal member of the Brexit campaign. He met with members of Glinwell and Lea Valley Growers after it was reported he backed a pro-Brexit lobby group’s call to “scrap unskilled migration from the EU”.

The association invited Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith to view the work involved in fresh produce production and reinforce the need for skilled and available workforce post Brexit. Technical Manager Matthew Simon and Site Manager Eduard Udyanskyy demonstrated the technology and growing techniques involved, and discussed that a glasshouse technician is a skilled role and requires appropriate labour in the future.
