To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 23 January 2017 to Question 60585, whether she plans to replace all funding from EU sources paid to UK farmers and growers after 2020 from the public purse; and if she will make a statement.
26 January 2017
We have been able to provide early certainty on payments to 2020 with the guarantees of funding. No decisions have yet been taken about future support beyond 2020. Before issuing detailed proposals, we will shortly be publishing for consultation two Green Papers setting out our ambitions for food, farming, and the environment. We look forward to working with industry, rural communities, and the public to shape our plans for the future outside the EU.
