UIN 68754, tabled on 21 March 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 20 March 2017 to Question 68033, on agriculture, when her Department plans to make a decision on how the commitment to maintain agricultural sector funding at equivalent Pillar 1 levels under the CAP from when the UK leaves the EU until 2020 will be managed and delivered; and if she will make a statement.

We understand the importance of providing certainty for farmers on funding, which is why the Government has guaranteed CAP Pillar I funding until the end of the Multiannual Financial Framework in 2020. Further details on arrangements for after 2020 will be given in due course and our intention is to do so sufficiently in advance of 2020 to give farmers time to plan.
