Answered on

25 April 2017

The Government has confirmed that it will guarantee funding for LEADER projects that are signed before EU exit as long as they are good value for money and are in line with domestic strategic priorities. Leaving the EU provides the opportunity to take our own decisions about how we deliver the policy objectives previously targeted by EU funding.
