Question

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, in how many cases his Department has made offers of financial support which were subsequently withdrawn because it was found to be in breach of EU state aid rules; and if he will make a statement.

Answer (George Eustice)

There have been no instances where Defra has made offers of financial support which were subsequently withdrawn because it was found to be in breach of EU state aid rules in the last two years. Identifying possible cases of withdrawal from more than two years ago would entail disproportionate cost.
