Donegal IFA calls for Climate Change Bill to be scrapped

The IFA is calling for the proposed Climate Change Bill to be abandoned in light of the setting of a date for the general election.

Earlier this week, the Oireachtas Agriculture Committee called for the bill to be put on hold, expressing concern about some of the restrictions it would impose.

the IFA says the bill is ill-timed and badly-thought, with the association's Donegal president saying the last thing farmers need is more restrictions.
