Answered on: 08 October 2019

The Government has guaranteed that any Rural Development Programme projects where funding has been agreed before the end of 2020 will be funded for their full lifetime. It will ensure continued funding for these projects until they finish and means that we can continue to sign new projects during 2019 and 2020, after the UK leaves the EU.

Furthermore the Government will maintain the commitment to provide the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of the Parliament. The Government will confirm the exact funding available in due course.
