HW Survey - how are you going to vote in the General Election?

With the big general election policy asks from the sector rolling in, Horticulture Week is seeking views on how the sector will vote, and why, on December 12.


The Conservative Government has said it will quadruple the number of migrant workers taking seasonal jobs on British farms next year via its Seasonal Agricultural Workers pilot. 

Tree planting is also big on the agenda with 30m-60m trees a year promised depending on the party's ambition.

Lobbyist Mark Glover of Newington Communications, which organises the All-Party Gardening and Horticulture Group, says the "rise of the environmental agenda" will be significant in the outcome of the election.

Horticulture Week has summarised the horticulture-related election promises and manifesto pledges. Will these influence you or will Brexit dictate the way you vote?

Please let us know by completing HW's (1-minute) Horticulture Industry Voting Intentions Survey.
