Fears raised over government’s attitude to farmers ahead of Brexit

MPs have warned that the government’s record on dealing with farming subsidies does not bode well for Brexit.

The Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC) expressed concern at delays in payments to farmers and landowners.

A PAC report raises fears over the government’s attitude to farmers after the UK withdraws from the EU.

It criticises the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) over how it has handled the Basic Payment Scheme.

Published on Friday (10 February), the PAC report is called Progress on the Common Agricultural Policy Delivery Programme.
