The Government has pledged to continue to support farmers financially by committing the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of this Parliament, expected in 2022. This includes all funding provided for farm support under both Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 of the current Common Agricultural Policy. We are working across Government to develop future funding arrangements.
Our plans for farming and for supporting farmers as the UK leaves the EU are underpinned by the Agriculture Bill. The Bill is a central part of the Government’s programme of legislation to deliver as smooth a departure as possible and achieve a green withdrawal from the EU. At the heart of our new policy in England will be a system that pays public money for public goods, rewarding farmers such as those in Yorkshire and Humber for creating habitats for wildlife while improving air and water quality.
