ICSA president Edmond Phelan has welcomed the appointment of Martin Heydon to the position of Junior Minister for Horticulture, Food and Forestry at the Department of Agriculture. “ICSA looks forward to engaging with Minister Heydon on ensuring that transparency along the food chain is delivered, and that a Food Ombudsman has the necessary powers to enforce this transparency. ICSA will also be pushing for EU regulations around food labelling to be tightened up and implemented without delay.”

“For the forestry sector ICSA is calling on Minister Heydon to urgently address the range of issues that are preventing people from getting into forestry, most notably the requirement to replant land.”
