New UK Agriculture Bill

The introduction of this Bill follows the Chancellor’s recent announcement that funding for direct payments will remain the same for 2020 as for 2019.

After this, the Agriculture Bill will provide a new system of farm support, which aims to move away from the EU’s Direct Payments structure and move instead towards a system where farmers are paid ‘public money for public goods’, such as enhancing air and water quality, tackling climate change or improving animal welfare.
