Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Over the years 2018 and 2019, an increase in funding amounting to €48 million was secured for the Areas of Natural Constraints (ANC) Scheme by my Department, bringing the total annual budget for the scheme to €250 million for 2019 and 2020.

The budget for the ANC scheme, and indeed for other schemes administered by my Department, for 2021 and future years is a function of national budgetary policy and is currently subject to ongoing discussions on the new Common Agricultural Policy and the transitional arrangements that are being put in place.
