Post-Brexit UK farm policy to offer ‘modules’ to devolved governments

A UK-wide framework with ‘modules’ for Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland is the most likely model for agriculture policy post-Brexit, says Defra minister George Eustice.

The return to the UK of powers currently held by the European Union under the Common Agricultural Policy is just one of many Brexit implications.

Mr Eustice said no decision had yet been made of how those powers would be split between London and devolved governments in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

But he added that no powers currently in the hands of devolved governments would be taken away.
