Further to WAQ77794, will the Minister make a statement on how the Welsh Government is monitoring the spend of the £27,750,29 budget allocated to Farming Connect, and how much money has been used so far on employing staff from the programme?

Answered by Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs Answered on 13/02/2019

The Farming Connect Programme is delivered on behalf of the Welsh Government by Lantra and Menter a Busnes. Monitoring of the contract by Welsh Government is done in accordance with Welsh Government and EU requirements.


Our contracts with Lantra and Menter a Busnes set out clear delivery objectives and it is for the contractors themselves to determine the level of resource required, within the contract price, to deliver our required outcomes.
