Cabinet approves changes to Fair Deal Scheme

The Cabinet has approved changes to the Fair Deal Scheme which provides a three year cap on financial contributions based on farm and business.

The move has been welcomed by Minister of State James Browne who has met with a number of farm families in Wexford who have loved ones too concerned to use the Fair Deal Scheme out of a fear of losing the family farm.

He said the Government has approved proposals which change this situation and create a fairer path for farmers to enter into the Fair Deal Scheme.
