Support for Farmers

Today the Conservative government announced a major new package of support for farmers, as we stick to our long-term plan to champion our countryside and protect British farming for the next generation.

  • We have delivered better targeted funding for farmers and protected our best farmland – but there is more that can be done. 
  • That is why the government is announcing our largest ever package of competitions and grants for farmers worth £427 million, as well as a UK-wide Food Security Index, new rules to make sure farmers always get fair prices for their products and cuts to planning red tape to help farmers grow their business. 
  • Meanwhile Labour can’t say how they will support British farming – in government they failed to provide the connectivity, jobs and investment rural communities needed, and years later they still have no plan to support the countryside. 
  • Only the Conservatives are listening to the voices of rural people and taking the long-term decisions needed to secure a brighter future.
