S5W-02204: Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 29 August 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what communications it has had with the UK Government relating to releasing CAP convergence funds to Scottish farmers.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 26 September 2016

Despite this, and assurances earlier this year from Defra Minister, George Eustice, that Defra would carry out a review of how the UK CAP budget is distributed, there has been no reply to my letter so far.

I raised the issue of releasing CAP convergence funds to Scottish farmers in a letter to the Secretary of State for Scotland, David Mundell, on 24 June 2016.
