At the heart of our new policy in England will be a system that pays public money for public goods, rewarding farmers for enhancing animal welfare, improving soil health and creating habitats for wildlife. We are also introducing measures to support investment in farm productivity and to improve fairness in the supply chain.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is right that the public are informed of how and where public funds are spent. We intend that information currently made available through our CAP Payments Search pages will continue to be published after the UK leaves the EU. This will apply in relation to payments made in England under the legacy CAP schemes, using retained CAP legislation, until the planned end of our agricultural transition period in 2027, or until the legacy schemes have ended, if earlier.</p><p> </p><p>Clause 2 of the Agriculture Bill contains powers to enable information to be published in relation to the new system of payments that will replace CAP schemes. This includes information on who receives payments and for what purpose. The exact nature of that information will be determined during the design process and in close discussion with stakeholders and across government. We will need to ensure a balance between transparency of public expenditure and commercial sensitivities.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has been very clear that leaving the EU will not lead to a lowering of our high animal welfare standards. Our regulatory system will offer the same level of assurance of animal welfare following our departure from the EU as it does now. The EU Withdrawal Act will ensure that existing EU standards are maintained once we leave the EU. For instance, existing bans on chlorinated chicken and hormone beef have been transferred into UK law and will remain in place after we leave.</p><p> </p> more like this

It is an abhorrent trade which causes suffering to the smuggled dogs and puts the health of pets and people in the UK at risk.

This approach includes international engagement, enforcement, public communications and tighter regulation.</p><p>Defra is considering a number of options for improved enforcement as part of a long term strategy for pet travel.
