Today The Country Decides

The rural communities need your vote to secure their futures. These are 2 snippets from the replies I received from the conservative parliamentary candidates to my letters regarding their views on the North York Moors and moorland communities.

Robert Goodwill – Scarborough and Whitby

“As a farmer myself I very much understand the importance of sustainable rural communities and the need to ensure that our moorland resource is managed, not only to benefit the wildlife that so many members of the public enjoy seeing but also to ensure that sheep farming and grouse shooting can continue to have a viable future.”


Kevin Hollinrake – Thirsk & Malton

“Having visited the North York Moors on several occasions I am very supportive of the investment and positive effect it has on the rural economy.”


I have still had NO reply from either the Labour or Lib Dem candidates so we can only deduce from their silence what their views are.

If you haven’t already made up your mind or you can help others make up theirs please do so, every vote counts.
