HTA welcomes General Election result

 Commenting on the general election result, James Clark, director of Policy and Communications at the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA), said:

“We welcome the clarity provided by the general election result and look forward to promptly engaging with the new Government and Parliamentarians to make the case for how a strong and vibrant horticulture sector is imperative for the Government to deliver its manifesto pledges.

"Horticulture makes a hugely important contribution to the economy, alongside the vital role it plays in supporting the wider environment, health and well-being benefits of gardening. We will be advocating the three key themes around the economy, trade and environment, central to our members’ needs, that need to be taken forward in a post Brexit environment.”
