The £778m Superfast Broadband Programme will provide 95% of UK premises with access to superfast broadband by the end of 2017.</p><p> </p><p>The RPA online system had been designed to operate on older dial-up internet connection speeds. In addition, many farmers in rural areas have affordable access to satellite broadband connection and the RPA had mobile satellite units to assist those in very hard to reach areas.

star this property answer text <p>The Government understands the importance of providing stability to farmers as we leave the European Union and has pledged to continue to commit the same cash total in funds for farm support for the duration of this Parliament, providing much needed certainty to farmers and landowners.</p><p> </p><p>In our consultation document ‘Health and Harmony’, we have provided a clear direction for future farm support in England based on public money for public goods – principally, environmental enhancement. We sought views on how future land management schemes can reflect the reality of life for farmers and food producers. As part of this, we invited ideas on what areas could constitute public goods and be supported under the new system, including rural resilience.</p><p> </p><p>Farmers need stability, certainty and a smooth transition to a new system, so we will not switch off Direct Payments overnight, and are consulting on an agricultural transition period to provide time for farmers to adjust. We have also confirmed we will pay the 2019 Basic Payment Scheme on the same basis as we do now. This, together with our proposed ‘agricultural transition’ period away from the current system of Direct Payments in England, will provide time for farmers to adjust.</p><p> </p><p>Some sectors may find it more difficult than others to adapt to the phasing out of Direct Payments, for example, those located in the most remote, wild and beautiful parts of England. The uplands have the potential to benefit from new environmental land management schemes, given the nature of their landscapes and the many public goods that they deliver, such as biodiversity, flood risk mitigation and carbon sequestration. We will explore possible options on how we can best support such areas.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We have pledged to continue to commit the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of this Parliament, expected in 2022. This includes all funding provided for farm support under both Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 of the current Common Agricultural Policy. This commitment applies to the whole of the UK, in both a negotiated and a no-deal scenario.</p><p>Our Agriculture Bill includes a seven year transition period from 2021 to 2027, during which Direct Payments will be phased out gradually. This will give time for farmers to adapt and prepare for the new environmental land management system, which will allow farmers to decide how best they can deliver environmental benefits from their business and their land.</p><p> </p> more like this
