Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The 10th amendment to the Rural Development Programme was recently approved by the EU Commission.  It provides for the possibility for the extension of the GLAS scheme in 2022.  As with all relevant Rural Development schemes, consideration of an extension will be subject to the availability of national funding through the annual budget process in the autumn.
