The article presents an interview with David Fursdon, president of the Country Land and Business Association (CLA). He states that the CLA has common ground with the National Farmers Union (NFU) in some areas such as agriculture but asserts that there are areas some things that the CLA does that will not interest the NFU. Fursdon claims that the CLA is perceived as an organization that stands up for its members' rights. According to him, the primary concern of the CLA is the future profitability of agriculture.
