 it is open to all with an interest in countryside issues.

 Commenting, Eddie Dougall, Constituency chairman:

 " The local Labour party is determined to organise open public meetings so  debate can take place on the great issues of the day. Farming is very  important to us and contributes greatly to the local rural economy. It faces  considerable challenges that all politicians need to address. I am
delighted  that we have managed to pull together such a varied and interesting panel  and I'd like to pay particular tribute to Alastair McCormack for agreeing to  attend during these difficult times for farmers".
