Government to examine post-Brexit agriculture funding for home nations

A new advisory panel will examine how the UK distributes its agriculture funding across the home nations after Brexit, the government has announced

A new advisory panel will examine how the UK distributes its agriculture funding across the home nations after Brexit, the government has announced.

The panel, led by Lord Bew of Donegore, will look at what factors should determine how funds are allocated between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and provide recommendations on future funding allocation.

The government has also committed to allocate funding without applying the Barnett formula, the Treasury’s standard mechanism for adjusting the amounts of public expenditure assigned to the home nations. This means Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will not be allocated funding according to the population size of each nation.
