£432 million funding boost for DEFRA

£432 million funding boost for DEFRAOn Wednesday (4th Sept), in the House of Commons during the Spending Round, Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid announced that DEFRA will be given £432 million of funding. He said: “Leaving the EU provides an opportunity to set world leading environmental standards, and we’re giving DEFRA £432 million of funding to do so.”

 

Javid added:

A healthy environment is a precondition for a healthy population – that’s why we’ve set out an ambitious 25-year plan for the UK’s natural environment.”

Mr Javid also pledged an extra £30 million towards decarbonisation schemes led by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), to help the UK meet its Net Zero commitment by 2050.

More details of this scheme will be set out in a National Infrastructure Strategy this autumn – this is on top of £87 million to help developing countries reduce their carbon emissions and adapt to climate change. He added: “Keeping our promise to be the first government in history to leave our environment in a better condition than we found it.”
