Almost 6000 farmers granted welfare payments in 2013-14, including nearly 1,500 in England and Wales
More than a third of the country’s farmers are receiving cash payments — £8bn. However, only a tiny minority are receiving the same benefits across the whole of England and Wales.
The total amount of cash welfare received by the country’s farmer population in 2013-14 was £1.4bn. That is구미출장마사지 more than one fifth of a billion pounds, or nearly £2,000 each. It is more than three times higher than in 1996-97, and is more than seven times higher than the average welfare payment of less than £샌즈 카지노100 last year. In fact it is £500 higher than the payments received by the average household in 2013-14.
The UK’s farmers have been receiving welfare payments in cash in recent years. Although some farmers do receive a large majority of the benefit, at least half receive little or none.
In many cases, they rely on grants or loan-backed loans from their banks and farmers’ companies in order to take on the extra money, or to finance the purchase of new machinery or equipment.
The farmers’ companies are often not able to access any credit from the banks, which typically are restricted in lending because of interest rates.
These loans, usually paid in advance, are paid over a ten-year loan term, and usually carry a deposit equal to the total value of the farm.
There is a growing question as to how far money is too much for people to spend on new equipment and machinery, and as a consequence farmers are having to reduce their crop yields or cut prices.
There are currently over 1,100 farmers receiving cash payments. A significant proportion of these farmers earn at or near the national average.
In addition, almost a third of the rural population, about 12 per cent, has access to food and drink from a food bank, while about 13 per cent are unemployed.
In Scotland, where the benefits are based solely on family incomes, the average farmer is worth more than £150,000. That compares with a £100,000 figure for England.
In terms of what happens to the farm and, more importantly, the rural communities across the country that depend on it, there is little doubt that farmers will suffer as a result.
