The National Farmers Union fears that opportunities for young people to gain experience in farm work on some 5,700 county farms may be in jeopardy under government plans for local government reorganisation, reports The Brimingham Post (p20).

Economic pressure on councils and government ideas about local government structure are a threat to opportunities for those employed on county farms, which are traditionally managed by county councils, it says.

The future of council-owned farms in Shropshire, Hereford and Worcester, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire are uncertain, the NFU claims.
