In 2015, the UK has been allocated around 7% of the total CAP budget, equivalent to a total of €4 billion.


In pounds sterling, based on the average European central Bank exchange rate for September used for calculating direct payments, this equates to a total of £2.9 billion. Of this amount, £2.3 billion is allocated to Pillar 1 direct payments and £620 million to Pillar 2 rural development.
