S5W-15951: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 17 April 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will implement a loan scheme for the 2018-19 round of common agricultural policy basic payments.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 4 May 2018

I published the CAP Stabilisation Plan in September last year, to tackle the major causes of poor customer service and put us on a more secure footing, this included a clear payment schedule for all our schemes payments. I will review progress with payments later in the year and decide whether it is necessary to offer interest free loans.
