Agriculture: Subsidies

Question for Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

UIN HL8226, tabled on 24 May 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 22 May (HL Deb, col 973), whether the three devolved administrations have agreed how the UK’s £3 billion of agricultural support will be divided up; and if not, what plans they have to reach an agreement.

Answered on

We have made a commitment that the amount we allocate to farming support - in cash terms - will be protected until the end of this Parliament. Allocations from the current Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) budget were set by the government in 2014.

No decisions have yet been taken on allocations once we have left the EU.
