The SNP MSP for Clydesdale, Aileen Campbell, has today welcomed a new poll by The Scottish Farmer showing that 47% of respondents will vote Yes in the Scottish independence referendum.

The poll comes further to another Scottish Farmer poll in November which showed that 74% of respondents believed they were more likely to vote Yes in next year’s independence referendum after Defra’s convergence decision.

Welcoming the results, Aileen Campbell MSP said:

"This is a great poll result which shows that farmers are leading the way in the movement towards a Yes vote in the referendum on September 18, with more and more farmers moving towards voting Yes.

"Clydesdale is a great farming constituency. Our rural communities have had a particularly bad deal from Westminster - independence offers a much better alternative.

"Westminster just doesn’t understand the needs of our rural communities, and as a result they are massively disadvantaged on a range of issues. Scotland has lost out in getting an extra ‚1 billion of support through the Common Agricultural Policy convergence period - thanks to Westminster Ministers negotiating Scotland to the bottom of the CAP funding league.

"Our farmers deserve a better future, and in September this year they can choose to get one. A Yes vote is the only option for a better future for our rural communities."
