Land Law Finance - Issue 14 - Autumn 2019

Issue 14 L and L a w F inance 9 provide Welsh farmers a 'degree of financial security during these uncertain times'. NFU Cymru President John Davies welcomed the announcement, saying: “Farmers are currently operating in a time of a great uncertainty, not least because of Brexit and impacts to commodity prices. “We welcome the Minister’s move to take action to provide much needed assurances to the farming sector at this time.” He added: “Of course Welsh government has a strong track record in delivering full BPS payments to the vast majority of farmers on the first day of the payment window. “While the announcement of today’s ‘BPS 2019 Support Scheme’ is encouraging, we very much hope Welsh government is able to build on this positive performance history and ensure that BPS is paid in full to all farmers as early as possible.”
