Lesley Griffiths AM, Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs
The Welsh Government’s consultation Brexit and our Land sought views on proposals for a new Land Management Programme for Wales. The consultation set out the case for change, five principles for future support and a broad outline of proposed future schemes.
Over 12,000 individual responses were received from a wide range of stakeholders and individuals.
Following the close of the consultation, the Welsh Government commissioned an independent research company to produce a comprehensive summary of responses. Today I am publishing this summary of responses, along with the Welsh Government policy response, along with an evidence pack – ‘Agriculture in Wales’. This evidence objectively assesses the current state of play of the agricultural sector in Wales and provides a source document which will help inform the development of the Welsh Government’s proposals for future support.
I plan to publish a subsequent, more detailed consultation document in advance of the Royal Welsh Show in early July this year.
