The article presents an interview with Mark Tinsley, chairman of the Oxford Farming Conference, regarding the conference and agricultural issues in Great Britain. He says that bankers, supply industry and customers are significant factors in the conference. He mentions that the rest of the food chain is being squeezed by supermarkets to the point that domestic production base is being eroded. Tinsley is not convinced that a change of government will make a difference on the prospects of farming.
