Scotland's farmers 'scunnered' by post-Brexit legislation impasse

February 25, 2019 / Michael Gove

The UK government published its Agriculture Bill last year, outlining a framework for farm support payments to replace the EU's Common Agricultural Policy. Although the administrations of Wales and Northern Ireland have asked the government to legislate on their behalf in some areas, the Scottish government has yet to bring forward their own proposals for farm payments after 2020. The Scottish government heavily criticised the Agriculture Bill, saying it 'completely fails' in meeting 'key tests' for Scottish agriculture.
