Farmers' leaders protest over 'green' subsidy plan
Farmers' leaders have urged the government not to implement plans to cut subsidies by 15% and transfer the cash to wildlife protection.
The National Farmers Union (NFU) has written to every MP, saying the plan to share £3.5bn of farm grants would disadvantage British farmers.
The NFU also warns MPs that going ahead with the move would risk rural votes.
