MLA, Lagan Valley
T5. Mr Poots asked the Minister for the Economy for an update on the Year of Food and Drink 2016. (AQT 230/16-21)
How will the success of the Year of Food and Drink be judged? I know that I am not much of a drinker, but I am not a bad eater — [Laughter.] — and I know that Northern Ireland has some excellent food.
Does the Minister recognise that over 2,700 regulations have been imposed on the agricultural community in carrying out its duties by the European Union? That is around one for every week that we have been in the European Union. Post-Brexit, can we look at having an enablement culture for the production of food, as opposed to the regulatory one that currently exists?
