The Secretary of State continues to have regular conversations with ministerial colleagues across Government on all aspects of exiting the EU.

To provide certainty to farmers and landowners, the Government has pledged to commit the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of this Parliament. This commitment applies to the whole UK.
