Government considers Hardship Payments for UK dairy farmers
Posted on 28 Apr 2020
One in three UK dairy farmers have found their supply chain severely impacted by coronavirus. Following some 1,800 urgent requests to local MPs from farmers across the UK, the government is now expected to discuss the possibility of a support package later this week. Officials say that this is likely to come in the form of a hardship fund, which could take the form of a targeted time-limited payment for farmers significantly impacted.
