Crofters say Government are playing fast and loose with facts

The Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) says Scottish Government officials seem to be "playing fast and loose with the facts" as they try to defend controversial plans to scrap crofting specific support measures.

As part of its review of the Scottish Rural Development Programme the Scottish Government has proposed scrapping the Crofting Counties Agricultural Grants Scheme (CCAGS) and replacing it with a scheme which is open to crofters and smallholders from all over Scotland.

The SCF has objected to the plan and is now questioning the integrity of the Government's defence of the proposal.
