Villagers in Stilton near Peterborough have met the Farming Minister today, in their latest attempt to try and get permission to call the cheese they make there... Stilton.
Cambridgeshire MP Shailesh Vara is backing their campaign saying it would boost jobs and tourism in the area.
"I want the Minister to be in no doubt whatsoever that we fit the criteria to be able to make cheese and call it Stilton.
Also, what I want is for his officials to work closely with Richard Landy, our local historian, and Liam McGivern, local businessman, to make sure that the next application that we put in will succeed."
The Stilton campaigners have since told ITV Anglia that Defra has agreed to work with them so that they can go through the process of submitting an application to Europe to make Stilton in Stilton.
