Breakfast panel will tackle Brexit's impact on agriculture


A PANEL of experts will be joining the Midlands Machinery Show this year to discuss how a soft or hard BREXIT may affect the industry.

The special breakfast debate is hosted and sponsored by property consultants, financial experts and lawyers from Streets Chartered Accountants, Langleys Solicitors, NatWest and Brown & Co are calling for visitors to the show on 23 and 24 November to register now and secure their place.

“We feel that the agricultural industry will be most affected by BREXIT,” said James Pinchbeck, marketing partner at Streets Chartered Accountants.

“As a result we felt that a breakfast seminar before the start of the Midlands Machinery Show would be a great opportunity to give farmers and those in the industry the chance to hear about what will affect them following the trigger of Article 50 and how they should prepare.

“As a Midlands based accountancy practice, the firm has looked after the interests of farming families for many generations along with those involved in agriculture and its allied industries. This special breakfast discussion will look at the opportunities and threats facing British agriculture, not least post Brexit.”

The breakfast seminar will take place on Wednesday 23 November in the Lady Eastwood Building at Newark Showground with registration and breakfast served from 7.30am. The seminar will begin 8am and last 45 minutes.

The panel will hear from keynote speaker, Roddy McLean, who is director of agriculture at NatWest, as well as Paul White, partner in Brown & Co’s agricultural business department, and Clare Slattery, an agricultural and land based tax specialist, with Streets Chartered Accountants.

The panel will be chaired by Andrew Fearn, chairman and head of agriculture at Langleys Solicitors.

The Midlands Machinery Show has been allocated NRoSO points for all visitors that attend its seminars.

Places are limited and booking is required early to attend the seminar. To register email Laura Butler lbutler@streetsweb.co.uk. Admittance into the Midlands Machinery Show and the seminar is free with seminar attendees receiving a hot breakfast roll and refreshments.
