Macra Na Feirme’s pre-Budget 2021 submission has been received by my Department.  My Department engages with stakeholders, including Macra Na Feirme, on an ongoing basis.

I met with Macra Na Feirme earlier this month to discuss their pre-budget submission and the issues raised will be considered in the context of Budget 2021 deliberations.
