Amendments to the Agriculture Bill

Following on from "Your Path awaits", support is needed to get two amendments accepted by your MP.

The Ramblers are supporting amendments by Caroline Lucas MP and Angela Smith MP that would mean farmers and land owners:

  • .Being rewarded when they enhance the path network, whether it’s by making existing paths more accessible to people with restricted mobility, or by adding new routes that better connect places and communities.
  • Only receiving public money if they fulfil their existing legal duties to keep public rights of way clear.  That’s fairer for farmers, safer for walkers and a better use of public money

We want as many MPs as possible to support these amendments. This is your opportunity to help strengthen the Bill and ensure it protects and enhances access to the countryside.
