Seasonal Agricultural Worker's Scheme

Angus produces almost one third one of soft fruit in Scotland and plays an important role in our local economy. That’s why I have campaigned for the introduction of a Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme to ensure that food producers have access to the labour they need.
