Agricultural Policy by the Year 2000 and its Effects

  • Richard Howarth


May I say first how pleased I am to be here in Reading again and what an honour it is to address this your 26th Annual Conference. When the title of the conference, ‘Agriculture 2000: a bright future’, was first given to me I must confess to wondering if it should not at least have had a question-mark after it. I don’t think I’m noted for being euphoric about the prospects for agriculture and for agricultural policy — a healthy dose of scepticism is always required when discussing them.
