Meet the new Chair, Neil Parish

18 June 2015

Neil Parish MP, elected as EFRA Committee Chair for the 2015 Parliament, outlines his views of the challenges for the environment, food and rural affairs as he takes on a lead role in scrutinising Defra.

A farmer from the South West of England, Neil was first elected in 2010 as the Conservative MP for Tiverton and Honiton and has been a member of the cross-party EFRA committee since then. Further members of the committee will be announced after the individual parties have held elections for their allocated seats.
