Labour plans to add new tax burden to farms. Food prices will rise.

A Labour Party policy report outlined plans to impose a new annual tax on every farm and farmland across the country.

Labour’s report proposes to impose business rates on farmland and farm buildings, which have been exempt since 1929.

This new tax on the countryside will decimate the farming industry and force up the cost of food, resulting in a more expensive weekly shop for hardworking people.

Labour’s plans for more borrowing and more debt will mean higher taxes and they are clearly eyeing up rural Britain to pay the price, irrespective of the economic damage it will cause.

Conservatives have taken positive action to reduce tax by cutting business rates on small firms. Our long-term economic plan is helping revive high streets across Britain.
