My aim is to ensure the continuation of the Rural Development Programme schemes during the transitional period.
In cases where contracts are already in place under relevant Schemes to continue beyond 2020, these will continue as outlined under the RDP.
Any decision to extend current RDP schemes will be made in the context of Budget 2021 and will ultimately require an amendment to the RDP to be approved by the EU Commission.
