To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on negotiations on farming policy for when the UK leaves the EU.

Answered on

3 May 2018

We continue to work closely with ministers and officials from all departments, including the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to further our preparations for exit from and new partnership with the EU. The Secretary of State continues to have regular conversations with Cabinet colleagues on all aspects of exiting the EU, including on agriculture policy.

All ministers are clear that leaving the EU means leaving the Common Agricultural Policy, and making our own decisions for our own farmers’ benefit for the first time in around half a century.
