Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:07.

Farmers react angrily to government claims they should

:00:08.:00:10.

Those ministers should come here on a Sunday morning and try to find

:00:11.:00:26.

those people, because I cannot find them.

:00:27.:00:29.

The woman given the job of running Hull's year as Chty

:00:30.:00:32.

of Culture says she wants to build a lasting legacy.The

:00:33.:00:34.

government hands over ?9 million to fix potholes in East Yorkshhre

:00:35.:00:37.

We're live at the Beverley Folk Festival, where

:00:38.:00:39.

thousands of people are expdcted for a weekend of live music.

:00:40.:00:48.

And a fine weekend on the c`rds but things going downhill next week I

:00:49.:00:55.

will be back later in the programme with all the details.

:00:56.:01:00.

Farmers in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have reactdd

:01:01.:01:02.

angrily to comments by a government minister th`t they

:01:03.:01:04.

Esther McVey says the food industry should find local

:01:05.:01:10.

But producers say local people aren't prepared to do

:01:11.:01:16.

the jobs that migrant workers are willing to take on.

:01:17.:01:21.

More from our political editor Tim Iredale.

:01:22.:01:31.

These freshly picked character being washed and packed, ready for the

:01:32.:01:39.

supermarket shelves. `` carrots are being washed. The vast majority of

:01:40.:01:42.

people carrying out the work from overseas. Without the oversdas

:01:43.:01:49.

workers we could not survivd. This woman came here from Estoni` to find

:01:50.:01:54.

work. She is now an assistant technical manager at this f`ctory

:01:55.:01:57.

and her mother is a seasonal worker here. My mother comes here for

:01:58.:02:02.

winter, she only comes for ` winter because my dad is still in this

:02:03.:02:08.

tourney. She spends half a xear in the factory, last year it w`s for

:02:09.:02:12.

parsnips. There is no slowdown when it comes to workers coming here from

:02:13.:02:19.

other European countries. L`st year saw 27% increase in migration from

:02:20.:02:25.

other nations. But Esther McVey says that farmers should be more willing

:02:26.:02:30.

to take on British`born workers She claims the number of new jobs going

:02:31.:02:36.

to British workers has doubled under this government. No longer hs it

:02:37.:02:40.

only for out of ten British Nationals getting jobs, it hs now

:02:41.:02:44.

nearly eight out of ten. I would like to think that those farmers do

:02:45.:02:47.

feel that they can take on British people, because we have gotten to

:02:48.:02:51.

the standard that they are good enough to employ. `` we havd got

:02:52.:03:00.

them. The ministers that sed that should come here on a Saturday

:03:01.:03:04.

morning and try to find me 050 local workers, because I cannot fhnd them.

:03:05.:03:10.

I spoke to a group of unemployed young men. Would you be willing to

:03:11.:03:20.

take on those jobs? Yes. But foreigners are taking them on, we

:03:21.:03:24.

are sick of them. Even housds. Some say that you are not willing to do

:03:25.:03:29.

the jobs that the foreigners do We would do the jobs, but the

:03:30.:03:34.

foreigners come over and get benefits and houses and do the jobs.

:03:35.:03:38.

Not for the first time, polhticians and employers have clashed over the

:03:39.:03:42.

reality of hiring home`grown workers.

:03:43.:03:47.

Earlier, I spoke to Andrew Wilson from the National Farmers' Tnion

:03:48.:03:50.

and asked him if the ministdr is right that farmers should elploy

:03:51.:03:53.

Farms have certainly tried to employ as many local people as thex can.

:03:54.:04:04.

The use difficulty is trying to find the people that we take the jobs. At

:04:05.:04:09.

the moment it seems that thd migrant workers either one is prepared to go

:04:10.:04:12.

jobs. People are saying that they do not see these jobs advertisdd. The

:04:13.:04:17.

farmers go straight to the foreign market. In reality, that is what is

:04:18.:04:22.

happening. They are not going straight to the foreign market. We

:04:23.:04:26.

have conducted a survey and out of the last survey, after recent job

:04:27.:04:31.

applications, 71% of them actually did not want to take the job. 7 % of

:04:32.:04:36.

reddish born workers did not want to take the jobs. Sort of the local

:04:37.:04:40.

people's fault, they do not want to take the jobs, not the lawydrs

:04:41.:04:46.

favouring migrant workers. We are not saying that the local pdople do

:04:47.:04:50.

not want the jobs, it is a puestion of what type of jobs are on offer.

:04:51.:04:55.

The jobs are not permanent, UK and British`born people overcamd for

:04:56.:04:59.

permanent jobs. Isn't that just an excuse? Do farmers simply rtle out

:05:00.:05:04.

British workers because thex prefer migrant workers? Farmers do not have

:05:05.:05:15.

preference at all. Are you sure 100% sure. They look for thd best

:05:16.:05:22.

people and the people that `re willing to the remote locathons and

:05:23.:05:25.

work long hours and put in the work on the manual labour side that is

:05:26.:05:31.

required. What people at hole will be seeing who are watching the

:05:32.:05:35.

television is that employers will be paying very low wages and that is

:05:36.:05:39.

what is happening, migrant workers will work for less. Isn't that the

:05:40.:05:43.

reality? We have is leasing the demise of their Agricultural Wages

:05:44.:05:49.

Board, which means that workers will get the minimum wage. Farmers need

:05:50.:05:56.

people who are willing to work in remote locations, long hours, and do

:05:57.:06:04.

manual labour. At the moment it is migrant workers to willing to do

:06:05.:06:10.

that. And what you say to those who say that picking cabbages is beneath

:06:11.:06:14.

them? We're not saying that anybody is saying that it is beneath them.

:06:15.:06:18.

You are saying that local pdople do not want to do those jobs, H am

:06:19.:06:22.

drawing a conclusion that you think that they do not want those jobs.

:06:23.:06:27.

The if people want those jobs then those jobs are available to them and

:06:28.:06:30.

there are many farmers that would likely employ local people to do

:06:31.:06:34.

those jobs. Thank you very much.

:06:35.:06:38.

Should farmers be forced to use British workers?

:06:39.:06:42.

Or do you understand why farmers are so resistant to

:06:43.:06:44.

And you can see more of this story on BBC1's Sunday Politics from 1am.

:06:45.:07:06.

Guests include the Hull East Labour MP Karl Turner

:07:07.:07:12.

A new badge for Hull City, but some Tigers fans are unhappy

:07:13.:07:17.

The author and journalist Rosie Millard will lead the team

:07:18.:07:27.

organising Hull's City of Ctlture celebrations in three years? time.

:07:28.:07:29.

She studied at the city's university and will be in charge of delivering

:07:30.:07:32.

In a moment Rosie Millard whll be joining me in the studio,

:07:33.:07:41.

but first Sarah Corker has lore on today's announcement.

:07:42.:07:50.

After an eight`month nationwide search, the broadcaster Roshe

:07:51.:07:55.

Millard started her new job today. She is now in charge of Hull's City

:07:56.:08:06.

of Culture programme. She h`s worked all over the globe, from thd red

:08:07.:08:09.

carpet in Hollywood to London Fashion Week. It is not the first

:08:10.:08:13.

time she has been on this programme either. It is all a world away from

:08:14.:08:27.

this week's walkabout on hunger `` Humber Street. Hopefully thhs can

:08:28.:08:33.

leave a wonderful legacy of work and of the joy that comes from great

:08:34.:08:40.

cultural production. Rosie Lillard graduated from the University of

:08:41.:08:46.

Hull in 1987. She was the BBC's arts correspondent for over a decade and

:08:47.:08:50.

today writes for several national newspapers. She lives in Islington

:08:51.:08:54.

and has four children. She has a lot of knowledge of Hull, let she also

:08:55.:08:59.

has a lot of national content. We are trying to get Hull known

:09:00.:09:07.

nationally. Business owners in Hull's fruit market had thehr own

:09:08.:09:12.

ideas about what priorities should be. It would be great to brhng up

:09:13.:09:18.

festivals like the BRIT Awards and the Turner prize. She could consult

:09:19.:09:22.

with those about how places like ours should flourish in 2017 and

:09:23.:09:30.

beyond that. She will be pahd ?25,000 a year. First on thd to`do

:09:31.:09:35.

list would be to recruit other senior members of the team to help

:09:36.:09:39.

to work on those big events. She started by reacquainting herself

:09:40.:09:43.

with a city she has describdd as inspirational.

:09:44.:09:48.

Well, we saw her there in S`rah s report, and I'm pleased to say that

:09:49.:09:51.

Congratulations. Are you excited? I am absolutely thrilled. Walking on

:09:52.:10:02.

air. I read an article last year that said that you adored this

:10:03.:10:07.

unloved city. Why have we bden unloved? I don't think that

:10:08.:10:10.

everybody has understood Hull. It is not on the main roads north, people

:10:11.:10:14.

have to have a reason to cole here, that is one of its great assets But

:10:15.:10:20.

for many people they have ndver been here and they do not understand its

:10:21.:10:25.

quirky, charming nature. It has been hit by recession and some pdople

:10:26.:10:29.

just only got that message from it. When you are talking to the trendy

:10:30.:10:34.

Islington set in London, do they turn their nose up? They do not get

:10:35.:10:40.

it, do they? They are starthng to a bit more. When I worked at the BBC,

:10:41.:10:46.

people would say, we're dightal to university? I would say Hull. And

:10:47.:10:53.

they would say really? Apart from Anthony Minghella, who was here at

:10:54.:10:57.

university and loved Hull. People who know Hull love it. A big job.

:10:58.:11:04.

What transformation and the City of Culture bring to our economx?

:11:05.:11:09.

Colossal. It can really represent... I think that a rebirth

:11:10.:11:15.

of Hull was on the way. With the Siemens contract. That is f`ntastic.

:11:16.:11:23.

It can happen. Look at Glasgow, City of Culture, reborn. Liverpool,

:11:24.:11:31.

reborn. The time is right for Hull. It will be a different

:11:32.:11:34.

infrastructure, a different city, it will have a huge effect. And what

:11:35.:11:39.

about those who say to me, H do not have a job. I am not botherdd about

:11:40.:11:45.

it, this will not affect me. What you say to those people who are

:11:46.:11:49.

watching tonight? I see that the City of Culture will providd, will

:11:50.:11:54.

life memories, it will get xou then switch our transformative stop it

:11:55.:11:58.

will provide spectacle and ht will provide a grassroots love of culture

:11:59.:12:07.

and of jobs. It will open pdople's eyes and hopefully train people up

:12:08.:12:11.

into different skills. I wish you well with it, I know that wd will

:12:12.:12:15.

see you. You will be fantastic in the role. When you read university,

:12:16.:12:21.

you wanted to be a cancan d`ncer? I did a little bit of cancan dancing

:12:22.:12:26.

at a restaurant! It is now sadly not there any more. What a shamd, we out

:12:27.:12:32.

of time! Thank you for coming in. Millions of pounds is to be spent

:12:33.:12:36.

fixing potholes, but will it be Big Crowds gather in Beverldy as the

:12:37.:12:40.

town's folk festival gets under way. Mark says, please do not tell your

:12:41.:13:18.

weather forecaster, but somdtimes I read watch her forecast durhng the

:13:19.:13:29.

week. Sad or what? He probably has a beer arm fetish! Ill like it is no

:13:30.:13:34.

wonder that people think th`t I get the forecast wrong.

:13:35.:13:47.

It looks like a warm weekend. The weather continues to be domhnated by

:13:48.:13:54.

high pressure, it will deteriorate next week, a lot of uncertahnty but

:13:55.:13:59.

we are expecting it to go downhill. Showers, or eventually long spells

:14:00.:14:05.

of rain. It has been very pleasant today, you can see on the s`tellite

:14:06.:14:08.

picture, not much in the wax of cloud to speak about. There could be

:14:09.:14:13.

the odd shower into this evdning, but generally it looks try `nd find.

:14:14.:14:18.

Overnight, dry with long cldar spells. Temperatures will stay in

:14:19.:14:24.

double figures. Down to arotnd 1 or 12 Celsius. The sun is setthng in

:14:25.:14:37.

the evening. We will start the day with clear skies. The coast will

:14:38.:14:40.

hang on to the best of the long sunny spells. Inland, the cloud will

:14:41.:14:46.

bubble up. Although there is a very small risk of showers, most places

:14:47.:14:52.

will stay dry. Temperatures will be sent as well. Along the coast,

:14:53.:15:05.

getting up to 16 or 17 Celshus. A very similar outlook for Sunday

:15:06.:15:11.

Variable cloud, dry, some ddcent spells of sunshine. The temperatures

:15:12.:15:16.

could be a degree or so higher than this. The risk of some showdrs on

:15:17.:15:29.

Monday. Increasingly unsettled. Gin`clear is whether term, hs it? Or

:15:30.:15:34.

is that just your drink? Both, actually! Have a nice weekend.

:15:35.:15:45.

The government has given cotncils in our area more than ?9 million to

:15:46.:15:48.

The money should mean 150,000 potholes will be filled in,

:15:49.:15:51.

but those responsible for m`ny of our roads say much more hs needed

:15:52.:15:54.

Cold winters and heavy rains mean that potholes have been a growing

:15:55.:16:05.

menace, and everyday hazard driving motorists mad.

:16:06.:16:10.

They are hazard, they are d`ngerous. This town, same as every other time,

:16:11.:16:20.

they are all over the place. But now money is being handed out from the

:16:21.:16:23.

government to councils across the country to help with the problem. It

:16:24.:16:28.

will be used to repair potholes and damaged roads, like this ond near

:16:29.:16:35.

Beverley today. We put unprdcedented amounts of money and to get ahead of

:16:36.:16:40.

the game. If we have had a bad winter, a frosty winter, whdre it

:16:41.:16:45.

breaks up the road, where ground water may bubble up, that ghves

:16:46.:16:48.

councils additional challenges and that is why this money has been made

:16:49.:16:53.

available. East Riding of Yorkshire Council has been given ?2.5 million.

:16:54.:17:00.

Hull and North East Lincolnshire has been given ?250,000. But thd biggest

:17:01.:17:09.

grant was to Lincolnshire. @lmost five 5p to fix potholes in the

:17:10.:17:20.

county. `` ?5.5 million. Thd government says it is an incentive

:17:21.:17:26.

to do more themselves. But some councils say it is not enough to

:17:27.:17:30.

repair the road infrastructtre. It is well received, but it only was a

:17:31.:17:34.

very small way to fixing will problem. But by targeting the money

:17:35.:17:38.

correctly we can get the best value out of it. ?6 million is a decent

:17:39.:17:45.

bit of money, but we could do with it again next year and the following

:17:46.:17:49.

year. What I would like is ` consistent high budget, not just one

:17:50.:17:54.

year. Pressure groups say that it will only be good if roads `re

:17:55.:17:58.

resurfaced, not just quick fix repairs.

:17:59.:18:27.

Plans to build 12 turbines on the Yorkshire Wolds have been

:18:28.:18:30.

EDF Energy Renewables wants to build a wind farm on farmland south

:18:31.:18:33.

of Driffield, which could power 13,000 holes.

:18:34.:18:35.

Some people living nearby s`y they are against the plans.

:18:36.:18:41.

Thanks to everyone who got hn touch about the suggestion that wd could

:18:42.:18:44.

Hull City has today unveiled the club's new crest for next sdason.

:18:45.:19:22.

They have taken away all naled references to Hull City

:19:23.:19:24.

and the Tigers, replacing it with a tiger?s head and

:19:25.:19:26.

Our sports reporter Simon Clark has been asking people

:19:27.:19:36.

The Hull City will has been through many transformations, but at its

:19:37.:19:55.

heart has always been the Thger And the big cat remains. For

:19:56.:19:57.

few years, this has been thd badge. But the club promised that they

:19:58.:20:05.

would change for this coming season and that they would consult fans on

:20:06.:20:09.

the way. That consultation process never took place, but this hs what

:20:10.:20:16.

has been produced. Apart from the 1904, this is very much the badge

:20:17.:20:25.

that has adorned the strip back in the 1960s. I preferred the old one.

:20:26.:20:32.

Old one is better. I would still like to see the name Hull Chty on

:20:33.:20:38.

the badge and the name Tigers. But we will have to get used to it. If

:20:39.:20:42.

he wants to put a pink tiger on there, let him do it, because

:20:43.:21:47.

In sport, Hull Kingston Rovdrs travel to Bradford Bulls tonight

:22:20.:22:25.

And Tonight, this year?s Beverley Folk Festival gets under

:22:26.:22:28.

way with thousands of peopld expected at the town's racecourse.

:22:29.:22:30.

Over the years there have bden some stars perform `

:22:31.:22:38.

This year it is Billy Bragg and Chas and Dave. It is really shaphng up to

:22:39.:22:55.

be a great festival. Music lovers have been coming here for over 0

:22:56.:23:02.

years. You can see Tom here who is already getting everybody in the

:23:03.:23:06.

mood for this fantastic event. A sound check ahead of his appearance

:23:07.:23:09.

at the Beverley Folk Festiv`l. Billy Bragg has been performing shnce the

:23:10.:23:16.

1970s. He says that Beverlex Folk Festival is one of his favotrites.

:23:17.:23:22.

Beverley allows me to come here and pick up a lot of people frol all

:23:23.:23:25.

over East Riding. That is why I ve come to do it. It is not just one

:23:26.:23:31.

odd evening in a hole somewhere The festival brings people from all

:23:32.:23:36.

over. It gets people from Lhncoln, from Grimsby. Chas and Dave are also

:23:37.:23:45.

playing this weekend. It is not just the music that attracts the crowd.

:23:46.:23:50.

Organisers say that there are lots of arts and cultural activities for

:23:51.:23:57.

people to enjoy. Lots of coledy literature, authors, poets. Lots of

:23:58.:24:01.

events for children as well, it is great for kids and young people It

:24:02.:24:08.

is quite relaxed environment, quite chilled place to come to enjoy the

:24:09.:24:14.

weekend the family. It is a nice small size and they have sole good

:24:15.:24:20.

acts here. It is a very fridndly festival. Entertaining and vibrant,

:24:21.:24:26.

organisers will be hoping that the festival lives up to its billing.

:24:27.:24:35.

Either any act that you havd got your eye on?

:24:36.:24:40.

If you would find me, the w`rm up act is on. Billy Bragg is dte on and

that `` images show that Brhtish men have joined militants in Ir`q.

:25:23.:25:29.

Top temperatures of 19 Celshus tomorrow.

:25:30.:25:34.

A big response to British pdople not working in farms. One viewer says,

:25:35.:25:40.

it is easy to stop farmers tsing the agencies which employ migrant

:25:41.:25:43.

workers. The British want the living wage whereas the migrant workers are

:25:44.:25:47.

driving wages down and are happy with minimum wage more or ldss.

:25:48.:25:52.

Simon agrees. It is because they want the work done on the cheap and

:25:53.:26:01.

us Brits refuse to be explohted Have a great weekend. Goodbxe.

:26:02.:26:06.

I wish that love could come into my life.
