Join our live CAP Q&A with DEFRA’s George Eustice

Farming minister George Eustice will be logging on to FWi on Thursday 21 November, for an exclusive online Q&A on the CAP consultation.


This is a unique opportunity to talk directly to a policymaker, get your questions answered and your views heard on the CAP consultation which is under way.


You might have a question about the possibility of transferring up to 15% of funds from Pillar 1 to Pillar 2. You might want to know what certain changes will mean for the UK’s competitiveness, environment or rural economies. Or maybe you have a suggestion for how you’d like to see policies rolled out across the country.


“UK CAP funding is worth about £20bn overall, so it’s crucial that we get it right,” said Mr Eustice.


“I’m looking forward to hearing ideas on how we can get the best value for money from CAP for farmers, the environment and rural communities over the next seven years.”
