star this property answer text <p>Upland farmers are eligible to receive payments under the Common Agricultural Policy's Basic Payment Scheme (BPS). We will pay Direct Payments for the 2019 scheme year on the same basis as for 2018 and plan to allocate the money paid in Direct Payments for 2020 in much the same way that we do now.</p><p> </p><p>Upland farmers can also apply for a Countryside Stewardship agreement, and many receive support through Countryside Stewardship and Environmental Stewardship. The current round of Countryside Stewardship is open for applications until 31 July. This includes a specific Wildlife offer for Upland farmers.

The figure includes all EU and Exchequer funding provided for farm support under both Pillar 1 and Pillar 2. Furthermore, all Pillar 2 agreements signed by 31 December 2020 will be funded for their lifetime.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government wants to become a world leader in using resources efficiently and cutting the amount of waste we create. This includes prolonging the lives of the materials and goods that we use, and moving away from the traditional ‘linear’ economic model of ‘take, make, use, and throw’.</p><p>For this reason the Government has supported new requirements agreed in the EU for 11 energy related product groups from November 2018 to January 2019.</p><p>The products subject to new requirements include white goods such as household refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines and washer-dryers. Some of the requirements agreed in these new regulations for white goods related to improving the resource efficiency of the product. They include obligations for manufacturers to design products for ease of dismantling/disassembly and reuse; make spare parts available to repairers and/or end users for ease of repair; provide information on the length of commercial guarantees; provide information as to repair; and provide information as to critical raw material content to facilitate material recovery.</p><p>In the Resources and Waste Strategy for England, we have also committed to drive more sustainable consumption through providing consumers with better information as to the sustainability of their purchasing decisions. This may include requiring consumer information be provided to support the purchase of products that have been designed, produced and packaged to minimise waste, for example by being more repairable, having longer warranties, produced with recycled material, or remanufactured.</p><p> </p>
