The Scottish Conservatives have delivered £211m for Scottish farmers.
On a visit to Peterhead today, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced that an additional £51.4m will be paid to Scottish farmers over the next two years.
This is on top of the £160m announced by the Chancellor on Wednesday, in the UK Spending Review, that is also to be given to Scottish farmers in convergence funds.
The Prime Minister’s announcement today takes the total funding package for Scottish farmers from the UK Conservative Government to £211.4 million.
This funding fully delivers on the recommendations of the Bew Review, also published today.
Peter Chapman, the Scottish Conservative shadow rural economy secretary has said this additional funding shows the Scottish Conservatives are delivering for Scottish farmers.
Peter Chapman, Scottish Conservative shadow rural economy secretary said:
“It’s very welcome to see the Prime Minister visiting Scotland and giving Scottish farmers another £50m.
“This is a demonstration of the commitment of the Scottish Conservatives to Scottish farmers.
“Scottish Conservative MPs have tirelessly campaigned for this ongoing funding for Scottish farmers.
“While the SNP has failed to provide Scottish farmers with any certainty going forward, the Scottish Conservatives have delivered.
“Once again, the SNP is too busy playing constitutional games while the Scottish Conservatives get on with the day job.”
