Any excuse to to use that image of former Lib Dem leader, perhaps their greatest leader, Willie Rennie trying to help out farmers?
Anyhow, in Insider today:
The Scottish Government has launched a loan scheme for crofters and farmers.
A total of £337 million is available to those in agriculture, which could see each given up to £133,638.
Letters will be sent to eligible crofters and farmers this week and the first payments will be made in September.
Rural Affairs Secretary, Mairi Gougeon, said: “Our absolute priority is ensuring farmers and crofters receive their payments and this scheme will ensure that farmers can access this support at the earliest ever point.
“There are a number of challenges arising from Brexit including around food supplies. We are continuing to support our farmers and crofters so that we we can maintain domestic food security and help secure local supply chains.
“Farmers and crofters have worked incredibly hard to keep us all supplied throughout the challenges brought by Brexit and the Covid pandemic and it is essential that they have the cash flow they need to continue operating.https://www.insider.co.uk/news/scottish-government-launches-loan-scheme-24801515
This will be a good thing then?
BBC Scotland’s website has it, way down on the business page.
Good Morning Scotland? Anyone strong enough to listen?
