Yesterday, following a Scottish Parliament debate, the  Agriculture (Retained EU Law and Data) (Scotland) Bill passed stage three, unanimously backed by MSPs. 

As a result of Brexit, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will cease to apply. This bill will allow Scottish ministers to ensure CAP funding can continue into 2021 in Scotland, providing some certainty for the coming months. 

For now, this gives us the legal framework to ensure that there is support in place for our farmers, and given the current uncertainties faced, anything which provides some stability is surely welcome.

However whether this is sufficient for the longer term will remain to be seen.
