SIR, The SNP has introduced an Agriculture and Rural Communities Bill that offers little clarity to farmers and crofters on how future funding will operate.

The SNP has cut £78m from the rural affairs budget in 2024/25.

The SNP, supported by the Greens, voted through the excessive Wildlife Management and Muirburn Bill at Stage 2 that will remove vital tools that farmers and land managers need to conserve wildlife and promote biodiversity.

In order to protect our rural economy, culture and way of life, the SNP and the Green Party must be voted out in every corner of Scotland.
