star this property answer text <p>The Agriculture Bill currently going through parliament provides the powers necessary to support sustainable livestock production by making payments to farmers for adopting approaches to farm husbandry that improve animal health and welfare and which protect the farmed environment. It also creates the powers needed to improve fairness and transparency in the supply chain so that livestock farmers can provide a fairer price for the food they produce. Finally, the government aims to secure a deep and comprehensive free trade deal with the EU that continues to provide for frictionless, tariff-free trade.</p><p> </p> more like this

We have achieved a number of positive steps towards lifting the ban, including the UK being recognised as officially free from HPAI by the World Organisation for Animal Health (the OIE) since September 2017. The UK also successfully hosted a Chinese inspection visit of Avian Influenza controls in the UK during September 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst the ban remains in place, the Chinese inspection report was positive with regards to the strength of our HPAI controls. We will continue to work across Government and with industry to enable the ban to be lifted.</p><p> </p><p>Once the ban is lifted, we can progress to resuming live exports of poultry, which was an open export market prior to the implementation of the ban.</p><p> </p><p>Following re-opening of pre-existing trade, we can then undertake the longer process of opening a brand new market for the poultry sector, namely poultry meat exports. We will look to build on the successful visit in September 2018 of the UK AI controls to aid in providing the reassurance to China to open this new market, which would extend the range of poultry products available for UK industry to export to China.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Exports of products from the UK’s 84 geographical indications (GIs) are valued at approximately £5bn per year, and about £1billion in domestic sales. Much of the production takes place in rural, often remote, areas providing vital input to local economies. This includes, for example, Scotch whisky and Scottish farmed salmon which are the UK’s two largest GI exports by value, and Welsh lamb, as well as smaller-scale products like Stornoway Black Pudding and Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese.</p><p> </p><p>GI protection acts in two ways to add value to rural economies. Firstly, it increases the value of the protected products. Academic studies suggest that UK consumers are prepared to pay between 7% and 20% more for GI products, though this varies considerably from product to product. Secondly, it protects sales volumes, particularly of exports, by preventing others from imitating the genuine article.</p><p> </p> more like this
