Island LFASS Payments Welcomed But More Targeting Needed

Tuesday, April 03, 2007

The Scottish Crofting Foundation has welcomed the Scottish Executive's decision to offer island crofters and farmers additional funding through the Less Favoured Areas Support Scheme. After a long campaign led by the SCF, the Executive have announced that they will offer farmers and crofters on islands an extra ten per cent to their annual funding through the scheme. This increase will be paid for by a slight reduction in payments to those in better areas of the country.
