CAP Budget Allocations

Commenting on the UK Government’s announcement on Common Agricultural Policy allocations,Scottish Labour’s Rural Affairs Spokeswoman, Claire Baker MSP, said:

“Whilst I am disappointed that Scotland has not received an immediate uplift, as called for on a cross-party basis by MSPs, it is important that all sides continue to try and work together to achieve a fair deal for farmers across Scotland.

“The UK and Scottish Government must now work together to deliver a coupling deal that will benefit Scottish farmers.

“The UK Government must also stand by its commitment to ensure that there is a review of the internal allocation of CAP funding to ensure a level playing field throughout the UK.”
