Then we can begin. Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for your being Slide33:  here today. As you know, we must try to decide what we’re going to do about the plan for the future of the countryside. We all know, in order to make life in the countryside attractive, the government must make sure that people can have enough work, schools, housing, local shops, health care, public transport, Slide34:  clean drinking water, and gas, electricity, telephone and Internet connection. I’d like to hear each of your opinions about the plan. Would you like to start by telling us who you are and what you think of the plan? B: Thank you. I’m a farmer. My name is Bob White. I agree that the government Slide35:  should make life in the countryside more attractive to stop people from moving away. As we all know, more than 70 percent of the land in the UK is used for agriculture. In the 1960s and 1970s, many people moved away from the countryside to live in the cities. However, in recent years, the Slide36:  population of the countryside has been grown. More and more people want to work and live in the countryside. But I think it would not be good if too many people moved to the countryside. Because large numbers of visitors may endanger the wildlife, landscape and historical sites, which are valued by Slide37:  both local people and visitors. I think it is necessary for our government to develop the economy of the countryside. Meanwhile we must pay attention to protecting the environment. J: I see. Thank you. Who’s next? D: I am. My name is Danny Rea. I think there are good opportunities for people to Slide38:  move from the cities to the countryside. Modern technology such as computers, Internet and fax makes working at a distance possible. So I believe that we can live and work in the countryside more conveniently. However, I think some services in the countryside should be improved, such as health care, public Slide39:  J: I agree with you. Thank you very much. Who wants to say something about this plan? C: My name is Charlie Kemp. I like traveling in the countryside. I like the beautiful scenery and I can always breathe fresh air in the countryside. transport, gas, Internet and so on. Slide40:  But I prefer to live and work in the city. In cities modern technology is developed very quickly. With the help of modern technology, our life is very comfortable and convenient. By the way, there are many friends in the cities, so it is easy for me to spend weekends with them happily. Slide41:  P: My name is Peter Smith. I am a hotel owner. First I should say 'thanks' to our government for having this developing plan for the future of the countryside. Since there are more and more tourists who take their holidays in the J: Yes. Thank you. How about the others? Slide42:  countryside, it is much easier for me to make money. So I think tourists may give local people the opportunity to make some extra money. But I think our government should also put emphasis on protecting the landscape. We should always remember to protect our environment. Slide43:  J: Thanks a lot. Now we have talked a lot about the plan. Thank you very much. Later I’ll write down your ideas and make a report to our government. Thanks again. Good-bye everyone.
