Subsidies

Countryside faces ‘damaging uncertainty’

The National Trust has weighed into the campaign to keep subsidies for Britain’s farmers at existing levels.

It says the countryside faces a decade of damaging post-Brexit uncertainty unless the government establishes support policies soon.

The Trust said affordable, high-quality food and wildlife-friendly farming can be secured for the current subsidy of £3bn a year.

Other commentators query whether that much cash needs to be spent.
