To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether the Government plans to introduce an alternative funding stream to the European and Maritime and Fisheries Fund after the UK leaves the EU.
Answer (George Eustice)
The government has made clear that all European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) projects approved before the UK leaves the EU will be fully funded even if these projects have not been completed by the time the UK leaves the EU. This guarantee applies across the UK.
Work to develop future domestic funds to replace those currently operated by the EU is underway.
