Agriculture Bill to be introduced into Parliament

16 January 2020

The Agriculture Bill is to be introduced into Parliament later today. A news release is available on the GOV.UK website. It will give the legislative framework for aspects including:-

  • Phasing out direct payments over the seven year "agricultural transition" period which will start from next year (2021) and see direct payments reduced to nil by 2028;
  • "Later in the agricultural transition", "de-link" direct payments, removing the need to "farm the land" to receive payment; and
  • Paying farmers for the delivery of "public goods";
