Question for Treasury

UIN 123674, tabled on 1 December 2020

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what discussions he had with the Welsh Government on Welsh farm payments prior to the 2020 Spending Review.

Answered on

9 December 2020

There has been significant engagement with the Welsh Government at ministerial and official level ahead of the 2020 Spending Review, including on the topic of farm payments.

At Spending Review 2020, the government provided £240 million of Exchequer funding for Welsh farmers, land managers and the rural economy for 2021/22. This meets the government’s manifesto commitment to maintain the current annual budget to farmers, ensuring that Welsh farmers will receive the same total funding in 2021/22 as they received in 2019 when the manifesto commitment was made.
