Agricultural policy across the United Kingdom (UK) was changing.

As the UK left the EU in March 2019, it would depart from the current subsidy system of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) that had underpinned UK farming for several decades.

All of the constituent UK countries had published their proposals for post-Brexit agricultural policies:

+ Wales - Brexit and our land
+ England - Health and harmony: the future for food, farming and the environment in a Green Brexit and the UK Agriculture Bill
+ Scotland - Stability and Simplicity: proposals for a rural funding transition period
+ Northern Ireland - Future Agricultural Policy Framework.

This In Brief blog summarised the UK Government's Agriculture Bill and looked, in particular, at its implications for Wales.
