Lochhead signals rural development 'bridging' priorities

As CAP reform continues to take shape most people involved in the process have been able to see that it is highly likely that there will be a gap between the end of the current SRDP and the start of the next programme, raising the prospect of real difficulties for some, especially those that rely on LFA support and woodland grants. Scottish Land & Estates has therefore been seeking clarification form Scottish Government on the arrangements that it will put in place should a hiatus in rural development funding appear. Richard Lochhead has now given a little more detail on his thinking on the priorities that he would like to continue to fund should bridging arrangements be necessary. These include LFASS, woodland creation, new entrants, food processing grants and LEADER. Mr Lochhead made these remarks in answers to the RACCE Committee and the Official Report can be accessed here: http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/parliamentarybusiness/28862.aspx?r=7370&;mode=pdf
