unstar this property answer text <p>The Secretary of State has regular discussions with Ministers across Government Departments about air pollution and how to reduce it. There remains a significant debate among experts about the efficacy of vegetation in reducing air pollution. Defra’s Air Quality Expert Group conclude that overall, vegetation and trees in particular are regarded as beneficial for the environment but they are not a solution to air quality problems in our cities and towns. The Government is giving priority to action on the multiple sources of pollutants, delivered through the Clean Air Strategy.</p> more like this

This includes all funding provided for farm support under both Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 of the current Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). We are working across Government to develop future funding arrangements.</p><p> </p><p>We will phase out Direct Payments in England during an agricultural transition period, giving time for farmers to adjust. We plan to start reducing payments in 2021. We aim to phase out Direct Payments completely by the end of the transition period, with the last payments being made for the 2027 scheme year.</p><p> </p><p>We expect that simplified versions of Countryside Stewardship will continue to be open to new applicants, including an uplands offer and capital grants. We are also currently considering whether or not to continue to extend certain Higher Level Stewardship Scheme agreements that offer strong continued environmental benefits expiring in 2019. Upland areas will continue to deliver outcomes and new agreements can be set up as we test and refine the new ELM arrangements.</p>
