Farmers will have the chance to quiz four prospective Brecon and Radnorshire MP candidates - Labour’s Tomos Davies, Conservative Chris Davies, Welsh Liberals’ leader Jane Dodds and Ukip’s Liz Phillips - at the Royal Welsh Showground, just before the by-election.

The Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) is hosting an agricultural hustings at its pavilion on the main arena on Monday, July 15, at 7pm, and is inviting all those with an interest to take part.

The by-election was called after more than 10,000 Brecon and Radnorshire constituents voted to recall Mr Davies following his conviction for submitting false expenses invoices.

FUW Brecon and Radnor county executive officer Aled Jones said: “It is essential for farmers and landowners to have the opportunity to question and query party candidates as well as hearing their views on the future of rural Wales.

“I urge our members and everyone who has an interest in the countryside to attend this event, so that they can make a fully informed decision when they take to the polls.”

The official Monster Raving Loony Party candidate Lady Lily The Pink and the Brexit Party’s Des Parkinson have also been invited.
