Motion text

This House notes that the 2019 Conservative Party Manifesto stated that the Government would guarantee the current annual budget to farmers in every year of the next parliament; notes that the pro Leave campaign during the EU Referendum promised that Wales would not lose a penny as a result of leaving the EU; recognises that direct payments account for 80 per cent of Welsh farm income; expresses deep concern that the Chancellor's Comprehensive Spending Review appears to show a shortfall of up to a third of Welsh farmers' current funding levels; calls on the Chancellor to urgently clarify the funding which will be available to Welsh farmers; and views the announcement as a Brexit betrayal of Welsh agriculture.
