Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The table below shows the total breakdown in funding for the Areas of Natural Constraints Scheme between EU and Exchequer funding in the years 2015 - 2020.

As my Department has secured additional funding for the Scheme in recent years, this has been funded via the Exchequer and thus the balance between EU and Exchequer funding has changed over the relevant period. Please note, payments have not yet commenced in respect of 2020.
